LA Photographer Set to Unveil Bloody Celebrity Canvas

Tyler Shields, a photographer and painter, will debut a new show this weekend at the Poodle Parlor in downtown Los Angeles. Titled “Life Is Not a Fairy Tale,” the exhibit will be open to the public on Sunday after a launch party Saturday night.

The main attraction is a painting he created using blood collected from more than a dozen celebrities. The list of artistic donors includes nightclub promoter Brent Bolthouse, film financier Ryan Kavanaugh, and actress Jenna Ushkowitz.

Kavanaugh was the one who paid for a doctor to collect blood from himself and the other participants. The exec has apparently been an early supporter of Shield’s endeavors.

Should be interesting. Shields is also a photo editor of Chicago headquartered The Printed Blog and is working on a book called The Dirty Side of Glamour.
