Anomaly art gallery and piercing studio presents "I Know You're Sorry, Now Apologize" a joint exhibit showcasing the paintings of L.A.-based artists Tyler Floren and Ruinsoncemore. This show will feature four new paintings by each artist as well as a few of their older favorites. Ruinsoncemore is a self-taught artist residing in Pasadena. He draws upon his many travels through America and his East Coast upbringing to express a surrealistic sentiment. His use of pop icons and technically decomposed backdrops serve as a critique of our modern society while simultaneously allowing the viewer to see a new world through his skewed vision.
