Amanda Harris Gallery welcomes Benjamin Alejandro

The Amanda Harris Gallery of Contemporary Art located on the first floor of Soho Lofts welcomes LA street artist, Benjamin Alejandro, for his first Las Vegas exhibition  The show follows the fame of talented musicians and other pop icons and movie stars of today who have set out to revolutionize Generation Z. Silk-screened canvases of celebrity mug shots offer commentary on the all-seeing eye of the public. The show features never-before-seen work by the artist, as well as a street art collaboration-installation, in Alejandro's first solo gallery exhibition.

Benjamin Alejandro, an emerging contemporary artist, proves through his work that the streets have not just been his choice of canvas, but his schooling and inspiration. He is known for wheat-pasting his own Los Angeles Police Department mug shot, an arrest ironically associated with current graffiti charges.
