Todd James and Lydia Fong “Brushstrokes” at V1 Gallery

Posted from The Citrus Report

We always like it when super talented artists who come from another planet, the planet of bugged out-ness, do a show together as is the case with Todd “REAS” James and Lydia “Don’t call me Barry McGee” Fong. They are teaming up for a show at the always influential V1 Gallery on July 9th, 2010. We will want to have been there, but Copenhagen is a long ways away.
