Best Dark Arts Gallery Los Angeles 2011 

Hyaena Gallery

There's an art gallery for absolutely everyone in Los Angeles, even fans of the macabre. Hyaena Gallery carries a large collection of "dark art" prints and original pieces, and frequently hosts similarly themed shows. For those who are fans of the blood-and-skulls aesthetic, Hyaena offers just about anything you can imagine, including Charles Manson's nude-photo collection and even his yarn-knitted scorpion. If you're an Ottis Toole fan, well, how about a photo of him in prison next to a Christmas tree? (Don't expect to get these items for cheap, however.) The gallery's featured artists run from household names like Albrecht Durer to such exquisitely named creators as Franke "Groovie Mann" Nardiello, Ralphie Repulsive and Angus Oblong. For those seeking something a bit less dark, Hyaena also has Marvel Comics art — authorized, commissioned and approved — as well as an assortment of quirky home wares and T-shirts. 1928 W. Olive Ave., Burbank. (818) 972-2448, hyaenagallery.com.
