Sunday is also the last day that the gallery will be open for the 2018 season before we close for the holidays. (We will re-open late January)

Attaboy co-founded Hi-Fructose new Contemporary Art Magazine in 2005 with his wife the artist Annie Owens and since it has become an influential best-selling art magazine. The magazine has been reprinted numerous times as Collected Edition hardcovers and elaborate box sets and honored with an exhibition celebrating the first ten years of the publication which toured from the Virginia MOCA to the Akron Art museum and the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. Atta has shown his own art at numerous galleries and museums, including a recent solo show at The Corey Helford gallery this past December. He has lectured at many institutions. He has a BA degree-type thing in toy design from the Fashion Inst. of Technology in NYC. He has also licensed his art to many companies including Kid Robot, Disney, Dark Horse, and even the rock band KISS. He is the author of several books which may or may not be for children, has self produced a strange game recently and has edited and designed Hi-Fructose’s upcoming New Contemporary Fashion Book which is being distributed by Abrams. He lives in Richmond, CA with Annie, a pug named Donut and a one-eyed four-toothed doggie who often makes sounds like a seal with a sinus infection.
