THE LOCOS

“California Locos” is a group show of contemporary art featuring the work of five artists whose working careers span the last half century in the Los Angeles art world.  Born out of the Los Angeles subcultural scenes of surf, skate, rock and street art, the artists make work that is highly individualized and freewheeling. Rather than being grouped as an aesthetic movement, these artists instead, visually represent the larger cultural fabric of the city itself in all its perverse and gritty glory.

Finally, all of the artists in this seminal exhibition rely on an instinctual sense of internal freedom from which they draw again and again in creating their images, and though the work possesses an essential and undeniably “California aesthetic,” ultimately the work is uniquely their own, rigorous and challenging on a multiplicity of levels.
