Hugo Rivera Gallery is located in Laguna Beach, California. We display original artwork from several talented Southern California contemporary artists, with an emphasis in the figurative and abstract.
Gleaning inspiration from Toulouse-Lautrec, Matisse and the French Impressionists, Giora Angres has fashioned an impressive body of vivid images based on the human spirit.
As a boy he won a scholarship to the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago and spent years studying art in Europe. In Paris he slowly developed his distinctive style that made him internationally famous. His art is exhibited in Art Museums, over fifty galleries world-wide and permanent art collection.
Angres Paintings speak of “joy de vivre” depicting animated figures in various states of activity and repose. Musical and dance, cityscapes, mother and child comprise much of his work. In the late 60’s Artist Angres put aside his paint brush and became another species of artist, a Cosmetic Surgeon.
