workshop on wall credits

My wall credit:

Mark Bradford 1961

Born and works USA

 

LOS MOSCOS 2004

Mixed media on canvas

 

Think living in a South-central LA neighborhood, helping your mom in her hair salon and using the backroom as studio space. BA, MA and there you have the artist Mark Bradford, combining in this work painting and collage techniques. What you see has indeed been compared to Modernist abstract paintings but it is more likely to have been informed by the diversity of urban California, where los moscos, a derogatory term for migrant day laborers, live side by side with Hollywood glamour.
