Over the summer, Steve Lazarides' temporary gallery in Beverly Hills has seen a variety of work -- from David Choe's take on L.A. to street artists taking on the city and nude performance art to Jonathan Yeo's Porn in the U.S.A.. Now, in the last show the gallery will see, comes something completely opposite. It's obsessive, commercial-like, kiddish and a lot of fun.

Running through August 26th, UK Artist Jay Jay Burridge's first solo exhibition "When Superstars Ruled the World" repackages industrial materials into life-size dinosaurs accompanied by walls filled with dino-themed art like shoes, paintings, crochet and other objects. This brand of art makes sense if you know something about Burridge -- he's the classic 70's kid raised on Star Wars, Atari and Lego.
