I am really enjoying Cuban artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada’s work. Each surface he creates a painting on is at least 150 years old!
Robert Minervini’s paintings are an accurate representation of how the true Los Angeles appears to me. Polluted atmosphere, palm trees (not native to LA) implanted everywhere, crumbling and tired buildings, freeway ramps… this is what my home looks like.
I had first came across Joyce Ho’s creepy and jarring collection of paintings on the Creative Quarterly website. When looking at her strong body of work, I often feel like I have come across a moment of surrender. The people in her predominantly yellow world are usually hunched over, or on the floor. Their eyes, which are dull with little to no sparkle of life, are what haunts me the most.
Taiwanese artist James Jean creates beautiful illustrations and paintings. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
Terry Rodgers reflects the time we are living in through his body of work. He touches on topics pertaining to contemporary body politics, isolation, and hope.
