“Pulling heavily from the realms of anime and science fiction, his mixed media sculptures have both an emotional and a playful side to them. He takes the painted work of artists like Hajime Sorayama into a completely welcome new direction, creating accessible manifestations of these visions that tell complete stories within the context each piece. Von Heiland’s artwork references Fritz Lang’s Metropolis while simultaneously flashing Tetsuo the Iron Man or Japanamation’s Robotech through your head.”

Von Heiland has been making a name for himself within the LA art scene and exhibits regularly in some of the largest group shows. His work has been featured in Girls and Corpses magazine.

An opening reception will be held Saturday, March 7, from 8pm to Midnight. For more information, visit

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
