Billy Morrison

Billy Morrison

Billy Morrison is one of the few rockers who can truly say he made it all the way to the top from the very bottom. 20 years ago, Billy was homeless and close to death. Today he is on the road with Billy Idol in support of the new Idol album (on which he co-wrote a number of tracks with Idol and Stevens) “Kings and Queens of the Underground” and able to share his ultimate success story of overcoming addiction and becoming one of the world’s top rhythm guitar players. From playing guitar in the Los Angeles-based celebrity supergroups Camp Freddy and Royal Machines to joining rock band The Cult on their 2001 reunion to writing and recording with his own bands Stimulator, Doheny, Circus Diablo, releasing his own solo material, and playing guitar for Billy Idol since 2009, Billy makes music at all levels.

In recent years, Morrison picked up paint and canvas and proceeded to paint prolifically. He has now not only amassed a body of work, but has also found a customer base that appreciates his darker introspective imagery. When asked about his new creative outlet and the subject matter, Billy replied, ”I just paint what lives inside my head. Sometimes that’s skulls, hand grenades and naked chicks. Other times its a statement on something I see in the world that I want to comment on or draw attention to.” His provocative and thought-inspiring statements embrace concepts of duality and mixed metaphors, and his use of color and mixed media has been embraced by both the music and art worlds.

Sinister Monopoly

“A native to Manhattan Beach, Sinister Monopoly grew up during the 70s and 80s. He started detailing cars while attending high school, eventually opening his own shop called Paradise Auto. His clientele was representative of the South Bay drug scene at the time, inevitably shifting his career from cars to cannabis. By 2006, Sinister became the largest marijuana trafficker, managing and delegating multiple international networks of weed distributors with multiple drops per day. His success was solidified after sending California kush clones to Canada for growing and cultivation. After introducing Kush to Canada, Sin became the first supplier of the infamous Bubba Kush strain to Atlanta, Chicago, and Detroit.

At the height of his career, Sinister was supplying the Los Angeles market with 800 pounds of marijuana a week. In 2011 Sinister was arrested by the feds, and, in 2012, sentenced to 11 years and four months for conspiring to distribute marijuana and cocaine and conspiring to launder money.

While serving his sentence at Terminal Island, Sinister taught himself how to paint. He was released on probation after serving 8 years and now lives and works in Manhattan Beach. His paintings are representative of memories and experiences during his career as one of the first chronic kings of America.”

Jahlil Nzinga

Jahlil Nzinga

Contemporary American artist Jahlil Nzinga seeks to transform the art world from the inside out with his highly emotional visual art, avant-garde techniques, and an understanding that an artist cannot be separated from any component of his life-affirming work.

Nzinga understands his art to be the purest expression of himself. So improvisational is his work that he equates it to a passion murder—exploding with emotion and without constraint or premeditated design. Nzinga has no desire to instruct his audience by using literal imagery but instead calls his viewers to wonder, be provoked, and conjure individual interpretation and analysis of his often-surreal renderings.

Nzinga created a custom floor-to-ceiling mural in his trademark freehand style for The Artist Tree West Hollywood. The mural, positioned at the rear of the retail showroom and the entryway to the VIP shopping lounge, inspires viewers to examine each of Nzinga’s unique interpretations of the human face.
