Located in the culturally rich downtown artists village of Santa Ana (DTSA)

An art gallery by David Luong

 

In April of 2014, David and Steven bought a live/work artist loft in DTSA.  David wanted to showcase his work as well as the work of other amazing digital artists he has met through out his career as a VFX artist. The artist loft is a unique place where you can have your home high up above, while also have a work space below for projects and creative work.  Together, Steven and David chose to turn it into an art gallery to be open once a month in conjunction with the monthly art walk of Santa Ana. The grand opening will be on August 2nd, 2014.

Photonic Playground it was to be dubbed, a gallery space featuring digital art work manifesting in the physical realm.  View the gallery space photos here. The art gallery will be curated by David, and is to feature the finest digital artists in the industry who have shown great skill in digital matte painting, 3D modeling, animation, photography, illustration, and character art. Limited edition large and small prints will be for sale by David and guest artists in the exhibitions.

David Luong is a visual effects artist working in the video games and film industry, a co-author of d'Artiste: Matte Painting 3 book and digital matte painting instructor of CGSociety.org.  He is currently a senior cinematic artist at Blizzard Entertainment and has worked on AAA game titles such as World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone.  You can check out more of his work at his website http://davidluong.net

Steven Dowling Jr is an avid gamer with strong business sense who also works in the video game industry.  He is currently a Senior Admin to the World of Warcraft team at Blizzard Entertainment and was the Executive Admin to former Chief Creative Officer, Rob Pardo at Blizzard.
