He is modest, serious, private--not the kind of person you would expect to see on the glossy pages of Vanity Fair. But there he was last October, peeking out among the perfume ads and gossip, under the headline "Hot Paints." Now that the art world has become hopelessly star-struck, perhaps the magazine was a good place for artist Raul Guerrero to be seen. His Los Angeles dealer thinks so. Guerrero, mildly allergic to marketing strategies and hype, just smiles.

An earthy blend of sex, commerce, desire and despair is concocted nightly in Tijuana's clubs and dance halls, according to the newest body of work by local artist Raul Guerrero. The milieu that Guerrero defines in his paintings and drawings now on view at the David Zapf Gallery (2400 Kettner Blvd., through Feb. 23), is, indeed, gritty, but also otherworldly and fantastic, a realm of extremes and escapism.

Tijuana--after dark. For many Americans who haven't been to this border town in years, the stereotypes remain: tourists buying serapes, shoddy hotels without running water, beggars on every corner, servicemen drunk in the streets. "Tijuana is almost a magical word," said artist Raul Guerrero, whose new series of paintings, "Aspectos de la Vida Nocturna en Tijuana B.C.," is on display at the Saxon-Lee Gallery in Los Angeles through Nov. 25.

Raul Guerrero uses the cliched language of the School of Paris to paint oils ostensibly inspired by specific places. But his poster-pretty paintings--lounging around in languid black lines and bright swaths of decorator color--were actually triggered by the debased romanticism and exhausted visual representations that signify memory. Looking at this art feels rather like observing Dufy's worst work over a glass of wine, but the effect is deftly calculated.

The idea dictates the medium for San Diego artist Raul Guerrero. As in work by Jonathan Borofsky, each of Guerrero's pieces is an independent satellite in its own weird orbit. This free-wheeling approach makes for highly entertaining, if visually inconsistent, exhibitions where the viewer is sure to discover at least one piece that appeals to him because nothing resembles anything else. A mini-retrospective of Guerrero, at USC Atelier in the Santa Monica Place mall (through Oct.

The 16 artists who have been brought together in the show "Presente!" at the Acevedo Gallery (4010 Goldfinch) are linked by their common Latino heritage, but little else. The themes they embrace range from the physical to the social and political landscapes, and their approaches vary from the saccharine and blandly decorative to the poignant and penetrating. There are highs and lows in this spotty survey, but the highs are worth searching out.
