Artist David Lozeau Showcases Day of the Dead Art Alongside Halloween Fetes

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) - Halloween is observed by children wearing monster masks and collecting candy from neighbors, but there is another celebration that takes place in Fall that also pairs sugary treats with spooky skeletons. El Día de los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, is steeped in the tradition of celebrating life instead of mourning death, and San Diego artist David Lozeau, who paints on everything from glass to canvas to violins, puts a non-traditional twist on this centuries-old subject matter with his unique style of lowbrow art.

Tienda de Reyes, a must-see shop in the heart of San Diego's historic Old Town, will be carrying three original Lozeau paintings as well a number of limited-edition canvas prints during the month of October. "There is no other place I would rather hang my works than Tienda de Reyes," says Lozeau. "They share my passion for unique and comical Día-inspired art."

On October 30th, Lozeau will paint in front of thousands of costumed event goers and share his Day of the Dead art at the 11th annual Día de los Muertos celebration at the historical Hollywood Forever Cemetery. On October 31st, Lozeau will paint at San Diego's largest Día de los Muertos festival at Mission San Luis Rey, a National Historic Landmark in Oceanside, California.
