History of La Luz De Jesus

La Luz de Jesus Gallery was established in 1986 as the brainchild of entrepreneur and art collector Billy Shire, considered largely responsible for fostering a new school of California art and prompting JUXTAPOZ Magazine to dub him “the Peggy Guggenheim of Lowbrow.

Showcasing mainly figurative, narrative paintings and unusual sculpture, the exhibitions are post-pop with content ranging from folk to outsider to religious to sexually deviant. The gallery’s objective is to bring underground art and counter-culture to the masses. Past shows have been groundbreaking, launching unknown artists who have since become famous, such as Manuel OcampoJoe Coleman, and Robert Williams.

A new exhibit opens on the first Friday of each month, with an opening reception that DETAILS (GQ) Magazine calls “the biggest and best party in Los Angeles.

Whether you’re a private collector, museum curator, set decorator, interior designer, or seeking art for a corporate or professional setting, we can find you exactly what you want. With our worldwide network of contacts, we can locate and acquire work from the world’s most sought artists. From street art to pop surrealism, and from sequential art to fine contemporary, whatever you seek can be obtained via our Fine Art Finding Service.

Also inquire about commissioning artwork from our twenty-seven year roster of painters, sculptors, and draughtsmen.
