Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 10/20/17 – “The Dark Side of MARVELous” series of paintings by German-born pop artist Albrecht Behmel was celebrated in style at the Hills Penthouse located at 8560 Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood on Thursday, October 19th, 2017 from 7-10 p.m.  Behmel and his lovely wife Afraa Zammam traveled all the way from Germany to raise relief funds for UNICEF to aid our neighbors in Mexico by means of this show.

Albrecht Behmel’s unique kaleidoscopic style was heavily influenced by Keith Haring and Piet Mondrian.  “This style is about the connectedness of all beings however different they may seem,” says Behmel, underscoring the humanitarian goals of the West Hollywood event.

Donnalynn Grant (Miami), Camila Manterola (Mexico City), and “Mr. Croatia” Antonio Lujak (Los Angeles) moved mountains to put together this exquisite international event–so DANKE, GRACIAS, and HVALA to all!  Soto Sake was the cocktail sponsor.
