Maybe it’s all the “Land Before Time” movies we watched as kids, but for some reason we just can’t get enough of dinosaurs. Apparently we’re not the only ones. British artist Jay Jay Burridge is bringing the dino-love to Los Angeles in a new exhibition called “When Super Stars Ruled the World.“You might recognize Burridge from the BBC TV show “Smart,” or from Bansky’s first screen print, “Rude Copper.” Now he’s presenting his first solo show stateside as part of a pop-up exhibit for UK’s Lazarides Gallery. He’s sculpted the 20-foot creatures, including a T-Rex, Stegosaurus, and Velociraptor, from industrial packing materials like tape and foam. But these aren’t your typical boring dinosaurs- instead, you’ll see them sipping tea, playing instruments, and even breakdancing. Just try finding that in the Museum of Natural History. “When Superstars Ruled The World” starts August 13th at Lazarides LA.
