Los Angeles-based painter Devin Crane has announced he will reveal his new collection in Paris this month.

The exhibit, called Heaven Can Wait, will mark Crane's first international solo exhibit. The collection of 17 paintings combines high fashion, sexuality and theology.

Crane's influences stem from a middle-class upbringing in Los Angeles, where he was exposed to the wealth of his friends and classmates. Here, he became enamored with fashion and luxury brands, and integrates the work of designers such as Dior, Versace, Lagerfeld, Galliano and Valentino into his paintings.

The works showcased in the Heaven Can Wait exhibit integrate these elements with facets of theology and antiquity, which the artist explored during years of Catholic school.

Crane said that he "wanted to bathe each painting in heavenly light and contrast with dark pieces of turmoil," and that the themes portrayed in the collection are intended to represent "the choices we make in life that can either bring us absolute pleasure or confinement in our self-made prisons."

The exhibit will be unveiled on May 26 at the Galerie Arludik in Paris.
