Lavera's exhibition showcases her signature style, characterized by eccentric shapes and vivid colors. It invites viewers to pause and engage with her artistic protest against the rapid pace of modern life. Departing from her usual large-scale canvases, "I'm not a robot" will present four smaller paintings arranged as a cohesive puzzle. Lavera integrates elements of pixelation, QR codes, and verification processes into her art, blending these technological motifs with traditional artistic expression to create a space for contemplation, interaction, and human connection.

Andaz West Hollywood, renowned for its history as an eclectic gateway to West Hollywood, provides an ideal backdrop for Lavera's exhibition. The hotel's vibrant atmosphere and artistic legacy, hosting legendary rockers in the '60s and '70s, complement Lavera's innovative approach to art. Lavera's rise to fame began with her unique artistic technique and profound message, catching the attention of influential figures like Greg Schriefer and Clive Davis, who have actively supported her career. This collaboration promises to be a captivating fusion of art and hospitality, inviting guests to experience a thought-provoking display during their stay on the iconic Sunset Strip.
