LEAKED: Lala, cheerleader gone bad.

30 May

Scandal

Hot off the presses, Lala’s dark past reveals itself to be a little bit brighter than described by the sought-after artist.  Based on a Fact has just received information that may undermine her rebel tortured artist image.  a dark pastPhotos have emerged from Lala’s childhood activities, displaying young Drona participating in gymnastics, dance, martial arts, and bird watching amongst many other pastimes.  However, the most unexpected of all, the one thing that could possibly demolish the artist’s career is that Lala Drona was a cheerleader.

PaparazziBased on a Fact caught up with the artist for a quote and she denied all allegations.  However, Lala has recently created an after-school program which brings elementary school children across all social cliques together.  It is called CWSB (cheerleaders without social borders).    “We live in another time.  Social cliques are starting as young as 7 years old these days,” Samuel Feranda, Lala’s PR manager says.  “Now the cheerleaders can hang out with the freaks, the artists.  They can even be artists themselves.”  Lala has decided to use her holiday to travel to American schools and implement this program in order to sprout social change where it is needed most.

Hiding

Based on a Fact finds it suspicious that Lala denied these allegations and then immediately created CWSB.  Some sources infer that Lala is doing this out of guilt, while other die-hard fans could care less.  Always about the artOne fan, who chooses to remain anonymous, states, “It doesn’t matter what Lala did, just that it lead her to be the artist she is today.”  Based on a Fact would have to agree.

First showing since art rehab! Success!

At the base of Montmartre, Lala stands with the smokers and chills out after a successful art opening.  The night is calm, and the air chill enough to lure art enthusiasts into the small bar where Lala has presented her work for the first time since released from art rehab.  Art talksExplains piecesSamantha Bait, a well-known Parisian art appreciator commented on the exhibition.  “The story (behind the paintings) becomes more emotional and full of life as Lala Drona explains her work… I expect to see more paintings, a way to discover her.” Many others were also surprised by how personal the content was.  Abstract realism, women’s bodies, and no heads.  One, a self-portrait of the artist, a story about her medical history.  The colors illuminated the bar and impacted many of its onlookers.   Lala explains

Based on a Fact had a moment to catch up with the artist and asked her why she chose such a personal subject matter.  She responded, “I’m an artist, so everything I’ve experienced is sort of on blast for the rest of the world.  What is art but another way of telling stories?  And who wants a half-finished story?  It’s like, sorry readers, but the author was too chicken to write the whole story, so you might not understand it with its missing pieces.  I think I’ve told every embarrassing or frightening story I’ve ever had in my paintings.  Or at least, that’s one of my goals.”

"U" Tres Fermee

Although the last metro had ended, many stayed at the bar, sharing, talking and drinking.  “I had a great time.  Lala surely knows how to turn a bar into a place full of emotions with her beautiful paintings.  I’ll surely keep an eye on this artist,” said Amine B., CEO of Mazian.

Based on a Fact would like to thank everyone for participating in this special showing of Lala’s work.  For those who would like another chance to speak to the artist about her work, there will be a small showing Thursday May 30th at the Botak Café.

Exhibition Opening: Paris, 210 days

13 May

Here we goThis Friday May 17th at 7pm, Based on a Fact presents Lala Drona’s first exhibition since leaving art rehab.  These last 7 months in Paris, Lala has escaped paparazzi attacks, fought with the homeless, had run-ins with the police, been investigated for participation in a zoo jailbreak, got into turf wars with neighboring graffiti artists/gangs, has fallen on her face and broke her tooth, rejected from art school, arrested and out of rehab and still continues to stay in Paris despite the disaster it has come to be.  “It’s been quite a storm,” she quotes to the L.D. Times.  “Hopefully one day I’ll say it was the perfect storm!”

Out of Rehab and Out of Cash

7 May

Lala OutAfter Lala’s last few run-ins with the local 94 police, she admitted herself into Le Tableau Vierge, a rehabilitation center located in the outskirts of Paris.  The orderlies commented on Lala’s participation, saying she was “surprisingly well-behaved,” and “actually quite a pleasure to have, despite the image painted by the media.” Games in Rehab

Rumors stir about financial struggle after Lala’s accident last February (medical bills) and other negative media hits.  No well-respected galleries are accepting the young rock-and-roll-image artist.  Many wonder if  this is why Lala is exhibiting her work at a small local café in Montmatre this month.  TherapyThe LD Times theorizes that perhaps the young artist feels as if she has sold out in Paris, and is taking control of how her work is exhibited, something that has been impossible thus far in her career with established galleries.

Either way, it looks like Lala Drona might need some help.  This is why Based on a Fact will be accepting donations to help Lala stay in Paris and to help her continue with her art.  Keep art alive, and keep Based on a Fact up and running.  Anything helps!
