Music will be provided by DJ El Ray with themed cocktails from Twenty Grand Vodka. Come spend a night with the TROGS, and see what the #TROGLIFE is all about. It’s certainly sure to be one to remember.

About The Artist
JaQ Dutch also known as “Dutchie” grew up in a family of artists and started displaying interest in art at a very young age. She turned talent in to more than just a hobby when she started her creative company, GUD GUERRILLA in 2010. GUD GUERRILLA serves as a creative hub for the many skills she has to present as a curator and multimedia artist. Jaq’s art encompasses a wide range of mediums, including, drawing, painting, graphic design, animation, and murals. JaQ’s body of work is generally described as imaginative, lowbrow, dark fantasy, with surreal imagery and a unique sense of visual balance. Heavily influenced by the “Masters of Magic” Jim Henson, Salvador Dali, Robt. Williams, Brian Froud, Ralph Bakshi, and Disney Animated Classics.

JaQ is an Elementary School Fine Arts Director, balancing teaching, and regularly
producing commissioned works such as murals, building installations, designing apparel, and
illustrations. Dutchie’s eclectic style has been featured on various online publications, as well as album covers, in films, commercials, restaurants and in galleries, all over Los Angeles, including Lab Art Gallery. Dutch is currently working on her 7th solo show curated by GUD GUERRILLA, entitled #TROGLIFE.
