Nats Getty’s brand Strike Oil recently launched his collection of spray paint-inspired jewelry which is available exclusively at Maxfield for the ‘Fine Jewelry’ category, with the Semi Fine line available at strikeoil.com. To celebrate this momentous event he enlisted artist Jack Winthrop, Mendel, and Bourn Rich to showcase their work with charity partner The Art Of Elysium. The event pulled in a patchwork of creatives and set the tone that reflected off of LA’s highly diverse intersection of queer creatives from Instagram queens Gigi Gorgeous and Gottmik to stylish activists Ashlee Marie Preston and Marsha Molinari to Tik Tok golden kids the Pride House.
At the opening event, Bourn Rich featured a documentary that highlighted connection and community in a work showcasing his graphic language while engaging with the various people walking through Melrose Ave. A display of his computerized necklaces were blown into lifesize proportions floating in a 3D box that also inter-grated AR tech in the form of an Instagram filter triggered through QR tech. The drinks poured cold as the open art space’s covid friendly opened and exposed windows also help to lol the classic scent of spray paints as they lingered with various engulfing smoke and the dewy hint of the evening’s east side mist.
15% of sales from the Spray Can jewelry line from the Strike Oil website will be donated to The Art Of Elysium, to support its volunteer art programs, find out more HERE.
