Artist Brent Estabrook is presenting Smiles, a pop-up exhibit at the Westfield Century City Mall in Los Angeles from July 11 –14, 2024. The exhibit will showcase the artists original paintings, prints, and collectibles, including an interactive claw machine and original plushies. Raised in Puyallup, Washington, and currently based in Los Angeles, Estabrook creates joyful, larger-than-life oil paintings and sculptures of plushie toys. His recent paintings maintain his signature buttery textures and vibrant color palette and reflect a growing emphasis on mindful presence. According to Estabrook, the key to his best work lies in the "how" of painting, which is guided by a practiced awareness that keeps him connected to each brushstroke and every mark on the canvas. This approach is rooted in meditation techniques and a deep commitment to his artistic pursuit.
