LIFE2 [LIFE Squared] is an art show dedicated to Instagram, the photo-sharing and social networking app made popular by its over 90 million users. The Instagram scene has no shortage of amazing artistry, and LIFE2 wants to feature this talent in an art gallery near you--giving artists a physical space to show their work and engage with the community. Instagrams are printed, framed, and displayed for all to see as a tangible work of art, not just a tiny square on your phone. Founded by Darrell Alonzi @darrellalonzi and Ninette Aguinaldo @nynz, LIFE2 made its debut in San Diego in April 2013 at Planet Rooth Design Haus and featured the work of 13 local artists.
