Mary Lai: Synchronicity February 16 – March 3, 2024 The Art Room 908 S Olive Street Los Angeles, CA 90015
Always a dreamer, LA-based Mary Lai has fulfilled her artistic fate by following her heart and gut intuition with a touch of luck. A versatile and savvy talent, Mary has excelled across multiple mediums with great success, including art, sculpture, fashion, murals, and graphic design. Her style is colorful, playful, and at times, interprets pop icons within humorous settings, and strives to uplift provoking a positive emotional connection with its audience.
For her upcoming exhibition, Synchronicity, taking place on February 16 at The Art Room in downtown Los Angeles, the show will celebrate and showcase over 25 pieces of Mary’s work. The concept of Synchronicity is a phenomenon when two seemingly unrelated events are intertwined and regarded as “meaningful coincidences.” For artists, these events can prove to be a validation on their journey and reaffirm taken directions. For Mary, this exhibition is her visual manifestation of meaningful coincidences and says, “meaningful coincidences seem to happen when preparation and hard work meets opportunity, validating our artistic journey”.
