L.A. street artist Kai Guetta will unveil a rather unique collection of work at the LULU Laboratorium in Wynwood, March 28-April 15. Now Royalty is a series of 27 original oil-on-canvas pieces in gawdy frames featuring bold-faced names like Rick Ross, Kanye West, Diddy, Eminem, Drake and other urban (music) legends dressed in period-style garb.

A cocktail party preview will be held at LULU 7 p.m. March 27. Info: 305-438-0071.

His companions beside Ferrell: Wetv’s Marriage Boot Camp counseling duo, Jim and Elizabeth Carroll. Sorry, the server didn’t spy on their conversation so that’s all we got right now.
