Fun, Sun and Art at the Beverly Hills artSHOW

Art of all types was featured at the biannual event.

Art fans young and old attended the spring over the weekend at .

Kaleo Sallas of Santa Monica came to the show with daring pieces of art from his "Images of Irony" series.

"What it does is takes our obsession with celebrity and juxtaposes it against our own compulsion for consumerism—and tells a world history story," said Kaleo, who goes by his first name for his art. "Most of it is pretty provocative." 

Kaleo said the response to his work has been "incredible."

"People either are finding humor and laughing quite a bit or people are voicing that they're offended by it," he said. "My job as an artist is first to let my imagination tell the story. Then if it gets people going and stirs conversation, that's the other job of my personal art style."

Palo Alto artist Fabienne Bismuth specializes in creating sculptures of women.

"It's my first time at the show," Bismuth said. "The energy is superb. All the artwork is beautiful." 

Marv Poulson, a stone sculptor out of Salt Lake City, said the show is a "fine venue" to display his work.

"People are very nice," he said. "It's a beautiful area."
