SAN DIEGO, CA – 5 May, 2017 – New San Diego hot spot, HIVE, is hosting a one-of-a-kind art show on May 21st, that will feature local artists who are prominent figures in the local fight community. The event is being held to support professional Muay Thai fighter and artist, Marvin “The Mad Lion” Madariaga, who will be representing San Diego in Thailand where he will be training and fighting later this year.
“We’re really excited to be hosting our first event of this kind,” said Scott Na, CEO of HIVE. “We are so pleased Marvin chose us as the venue for his art show—it’s great to be able to support our local artists and bring the community together for events like this.”
Located in Kearny Mesa—the heart of San Diego’s Asian cuisine—HIVE opened its doors in January of this year as an extension of the popular karaoke bar, Chorus. After only being open for a few short months, the restaurant/bar has quickly become a popular destination for culinary and liquor enthusiasts. “The UFC nights that we host here fill up pretty quickly and most of our tables get booked in advance,” said Na. “There are obviously a lot of fight fans out there so this art show will bring together the fight community with the local art scene.”
The art show, “Complementary Colors,” will take over the space, with a diverse mix of art pieces on display and for sale. Artists featured include:
• Marvin “The Mad Lion” Madariaga – professional Muay Thai fighter and artist
• Kevin “The Soul Assassin” Ross – ranked one of the top kickboxers in the world by the World Boxing Council (WBc)
• West Coast Muay Thai founder and representatives – Galen Okazaki, Ahren Nunag, and Jeff Dojillo
• Jack Jittkaroonrus – founder of Satrawoot
All artists featured will be in attendance at the event and guests are encouraged to take the opportunity to meet these talented individuals and purchase their unique pieces. All sales profits will go to the individual artists. Light appetizers will be served with the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets during the event giving guests the chance to win artwork created by the artists specifically for this event.

HIVE San Diego will be the first establishment in San Diego to create a whole foundation for entertainment, food, bar, and nightlife, all in one!
