Disaster Artist Moves Ahead – Hong Bo – Art vs. Environment – An Ordinary Couple

The Room, the cult classic produced, directed & starring Tommy Wiseau was a total disaster. At the premiere, people ran out of the theater, and reviewers like moi were completely puzzled why this film was even made. However, with the assistance of Wiseau’s PR Pro, Edward Lozzi, the film was marketed from a drama to dark comedy, and celeb comics like Judd Apatow & Jonah Hill,( best friends of actor James Franco & Seth Rogan) convinced them to see it — and the miracle happened. The film, The Disaster Artist, based upon the book written by Greg Sestero, about the making of The Room starring James Franco, is a major success! After winning a Golden Globe for his performance, could an Oscar be far behind?

Chinese artist Hong Bo recently had an exhibit of his paintings & furniture design at the California Design Center which brought out distinguished art professors, contemporary artists, writers & reporters to discuss the theme how paintings & furniture design work together to make our living environment more comfortable. Hong Bo has been exploring California landscape for several years, and his interpretation of “California Sunshine” combines the western color concept with oriental ink painting techniques to create a new look.
