An undefeated middle-weight from Kazakhstan, boxer Triple G smiles a lot and looks relatively naive even when he's destroying an opponent. In artist Cyril Kuhn's portrait of him, he's even more big-eyed and endearing than in real life. It's hard to tear your eyes away. Kuhn's new show at Jancar, called “Mirrored Face-Off,” is full of paintings like this, which turn public figures and pop stars (Hillary Clinton and Madonna also make appearances) into vulnerable characters in some alien fantasy. 961 Chung King Road, Chinatown; through Oct. 4. (213) 625-2522, jancargallery.com.
