Avenue des Arts in Los Angeles is currently hosting a solo exhibition with original works by rising visual artist, Tommii Lim. Entitled ODD MAN OUT, the presentation features small- and large-scale acrylic on canvas paintings and sculptures. Moreover, the gallery displays products designed by Lim including his collaborative Under Armour Curry 5 sneakers.

Altogether, the LA-based creative’s signature style consists of white and black abstract depictions of landscapes, human figures, and elements drawn from his personal observations. The centerpiece of the show is a painting of Bruce Lee entitled Chino. “This show is a journal to asking myself, ‘Which me am I today?’” said Lim in a statement. “Growing up as an Asian in LA, I hated Bruce Lee, he was a derogatory racial slur. As I got older, I realized how disruptive and extraordinary he was. ‘Chino’ is a reflection of the baggage I shunned as a youth transformed into the foundation of my existence today.”
