I was first introduced to Dia’s, aka Sean Somers, work 2 years ago.  There was an opening at Fifty24SF gallery and I was inspired by one of his works.   I was drawn to the 7 feet tall and 2 feet wide gold and black canvas that portrayed one of Dia’s classic sensual women lounging on a tree.  She was toting a koto (a traditional Japanese mandolin) on her back.  I fell in love with the piece and I bought it.

Since then, I have invited Dia to show his work at 1:AM gallery.  He was part of a three man show back in July where he created an installation with a gold-leafed tree coming out of a piano.  And now, he is once again adorning our walls with one of his masterpieces.  We couldn’t have an anniversary show without his work and he definitely did not disappoint…with his canvas or his face painting.
