Silverlake art gallery Ghettogloss recently hosted figure drawing classes at La Cita Bar in Los Angeles. During these classes that became known as "The Bronx Zoo", bikini-clad models wearing gorilla masks posed for artists to draw. Here are photos from some of the sessions:
The best drawings from these sessions were shown at a Ghettogloss group show curated by Flavorpill's Shana Nys Dambrot.
I love these photos. If you ever have taken a figure drawing class, you know how difficult it is to master the drawing of the human body. Somehow the masks make the models/figures even more interesting. I have taken a lot of figure drawing classes, but never one like this!
