reggie casagrande and her 'paradise lost'

hands down, one of the ballsiest broads i've met in los angeles since calling it home over the past two years has been reggie casagrande (founder of lipsticktracez). yesterday i semi-jokingly wrote in her 'paradise lost' exhibition guest book "behind every great man there is an even greater woman" (casagrande is married to stussy creative king paul mittleman and no, you don't need me to confirm that both of them know what's up when it comes to art, commerce and culture). the mixed-media show spotlights miami in the late 70s and spans everything from scarface-inspired polaroid collages to oldschool-mobile screen prints, and some clever wrestling posters featuring my favorite dame with the deadpan glare 'griselda blanco'. for anyone in los angeles, show your support and swing by the gallery over the next couple of days before the show concludes its course at 6020 wilshire blvd, 90036 (opposite lacma).
