Last Saturday night we headed over to Hope Gallery, a small space nestled in the hills of Echo Park, to attend "Born to Cry" Aaron Rose’s first solo show since 1992. Rose’s work features functional objects like acoustic guitars, lamps and suitcases painted with vibrant colors and bold lettering that brought each piece to life. While the items oozed warmth through their colors, the entire gallery space became a room of positive energy, as tons of onlookers piled in to catch a glimpse of Rose’s prismatic show. Clothes-wise, attendees kept it simple by paring neutral blacks and whites with hints of muddled colors. Unsurprisingly, all outfits strayed from primary colors, because who'd want to detract from the amazing palette of Rose's show?
