Hi all, just wanted to let you all know I'll be taking a brief hiatus from posting. No worries, I'm still painting! Right now I'm between shows, and just want to take advantage of this time to experiment and refocus on painting.

Prints and pieces will still be for sale though, so please get in touch with any purchase inquiries. I'll be back and posting again in a month or so. See you all in March!

The "Creep Show" exhibition at Lower Hater Gallery is coming up in a couple of days! I've received a few emails from people interested in purchasing pieces from the show but don't live in the area, so I've created an online catalog of sorts. If interested, you can check out which pieces I'm showing, their prices, and the gallery's contact information for purchase inquiries. Lawrence Yang Creep Show Catalog.

All pieces will officially be available on Friday, October 9th, the day of the opening reception. (and if you're in the SF Bay area, I'd love to see you there! Details here)

Let me know if you have any questions, thanks!

Looks like I only ever touch this page when I have shows coming up. Ah well... there's always my here. It should be a fun show -- a bunch of artists were each given a movie poster and set loose. From what I've seen so far, everyone's really digging into it and there is some amazing work.

Also, I've added fifteen of my latest paintings to the artwork section. Take a look! I'll probably be using a bunch of these in the three shows coming up in October -- more on that in a bit =).

7/11/2009
Finally, an update! First off, there's a new show coming up on Friday, July 24th at Gallery 1988 SF -- view the flyer for the show here.

Hello -- APE was fun! I met a ton of really great people, got a lot of email addresses for my mailing list, and sold some art. Good times! If you want to get the full rundown, you can check out the blog post here.

I've also added a few pieces to the artwork section, and am currently working on updating the store section. Stay tuned!

11/1/2008

Hi all! I've been very busy getting ready for the next few events coming up. Here's a quick update.

This coming Friday, October 10th is the grand opening of 1:AM Gallery in San Francisco! I'll be showing five pieces, and it should be a ton of fun. Check out which pieces I'll be showing here, and see details for the show here.

I've prepared some limited edition prints of "The Chase" . These are prints of the highest quality on archival watercolor paper. Each 12" x 6" hand signed and numbered print is available for $50. There will be 100 made! No more, no less. Email me if interested =).

In addition to the prints, I will be selling a new book and a whole slew of 1" buttons. Details coming soon!

9/22/2008
I want to ask you all for your help. I want to make some limited edition prints, so I've created an online poll to ask for your feedback. Please visit here, it should only take a few seconds -- http://www.suckatlife.com/poll.html

I've been getting ready for a show in San Francisco that opens on October 10th. It is the first opening of this new gallery (called 1:AM), and I'm really excited to be in the company of some really great artists. Check out show details here.

I've also been getting ready for the Alternative Press Expo coming up in a couple months. I'm working on a new book, buttons and prints. These are some of the buttons I have so far. There have been a lot of questions about my piece, "The Chase" -- and so I'll be doing limited edition prints of this piece for the expo.

Last, my art is up on display at Kearny Street Workshop's annual APAture festival. There are some really great events going on from September 18th through the 27th, so if you're in the Bay area you should definitely check it out! Find out more details here.

Paper Pushers opened last night and it was great! Five out of the ten pieces I submitted sold right away, and there's still a full month to go.

The "Mountain Creatures" opening reception was a huge success! I never could have imagined the show going as well as it did. Tons of friends, coworkers, friends of friends, and random people showed up to check out the art. I ended up selling a bit over half of the work on the opening night.

The work will be up for another month and a half, and I will be updating the art section to reflect what pieces are still for sale. Please email me if you are interested in purchasing a piece. Thanks!

5/05/2008
I've updated the artwork section to show which pieces I'll actually be showing at MR in a couple weeks. There've also been a few sales, so that's been updated as well =).

5/04/2008
As you can see above I have big news! My first solo show ever will have its opening reception on May 16th at MR-- a pretty sweet fusion of contemporary barbershop and a bar. I'm really looking forward to the show, and have been preparing like a madman. There will be about thirty five pieces on dispplay, and space will pretty much be filled with my work. Most of the pieces will be on sale, so hopefully that side of things will go well too!
You can take a look at some of the pieces I will be showing in the artwork section, and take a look at the space I will be showing at here.
