jFERRARI Gallery, one of the hottest new contemporary art galleries in the LA art scene, brings together a variety of accomplished and emerging fine artists for a Day of the Dead Celebration called “Baile de las calaveras”. Meet the artists Saturday, October 21st from 3-9pm. Live Music by local musician Chapa. Refreshments will be served.

Eduardo Bonilla

He is an artist with spirit, a clear spirit: therefore he is able to cross over his own social and human limits in order to have more possibilities to exist, and most important: to create with out any pressures or ties imposed by society and life.

Through his works, he invites us to know him and his journey on his search in life, a search in which life is the main character of his works.

When we look at his paintings it is possible to see in the darkness, to listen in the silence. When we look at his creations, we may create or recreate stories in unexpected scenarios. Some paintings might make us feel emotions and sensations that we probably have never felt n a long while.

He has been in the art world since childhood when he was discovered and encouraged by writer and philanthropist Lois Raser. Since then he has exhibited in more than 35 collective exhibits and 10 solo shows in both Zacatecas and California.

Ernesto de la Loza

"Murals have healing powers," believes Ernesto de la Loza, and concern for the environment is a theme that often shows up in his work. He has been painting walls since 1974 when he worked as mural artist and project director at Estrada Courts housing project in East Los Angeles. Trips to Europe and Mexico as well as classes locally in art, architecture, ethnic studies, and social science have all influenced his continuously evolving painting style. He is also an accomplished teacher, billboard artist, and handball player.

Ricardo Duffy

His work is rooted in Pre-Columbian artifacts, history, myths and yet it is a social commentary that pertains to the struggles of Latin America and to the parallel experiences of other nations. To Duffy, it seems that if we are to survive pollution, war, totalitarianism, religious fanaticism, drug abuse, annihilation of the Earth's natural resources, and all the other ills that afflict our planet, we must create a universal conscience in humans.

Although his dry humor often manifests itself in his art, he hopes his art makes people aware of why they do what they do and consequences of their actions.

Carlos J. Flores

People, in both public and private spaces, are his main source of inspiration. The unpredictable snapshot, taking place when it is least expected, is what lures him into creating his work. He likes being an unsuspected witness to the most common everyday affairs, inject them with emotional content, and elevate them to a not so common state of existence.

His subjects are usually not fully enclosed within the picture area, because he wishes to have a more intimate look at them. The little color he uses is only used to emphasize the areas that are most important for him to see a story. He works on wood panel, because it allows him to forcefully and energetically apply paint to his compositions.

Juliana Martinez

She is 51 years old and has been an artist since she was 7. She lives and works in Los Angeles, her heart and soul are in Puerto Rico. She is extremely proud of being Boricua, but has no social issues, she just paints from her heart, trying to capture her feelings of the moment. “ Sometimes it’s better to feel great than having to contemplate your angst all the time.” She hopes her work will make you smile.

Rachel Rifat

Rachel Rifat's goal in life is to perform great deeds through art. She suffered many years in Catholic school where the nuns and priests found her quite displeasing. The nuns could never understand why a young girl would only choose to read from Revelations. She was not allowed to return to several parishes after her series of debates with the priests.

Her great works have been published and written about in People Magazine, Wall Street Journal , Entrepreneur Magazine, and The Los Angeles Times. She feels she owes her good fortune in part to the kind prayers of the Sisters in Santa Barbara.

She aspires to be the patron saint of murals, painting, and illustration.

Other Artists include: Jazmin Ferrari, owner/curator of jFERRARI Gallery and emerging artist Robert Dalzell.

“Baile de las Calaveras” is on exhibit October 21st through November 1st, 2006. Gallery hours: 12-5 pm Wednesday through Saturday, or by appointment. For more information, visit
