Thomas Pendelton

Thomas Pendelton didn’t go to a fancy art school. He doesn’t collect his own artwork. In fact, he doesn’t do a lot of the stuff most working artists do, but what he does do, is work 12 hour days, seven days a week to keep the dream of being an artist alive. And it’s this...

D*Face

FIND Art Magazine recently met up with D*Face on the eve of his opening, “Going Nowhere Fast” at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, CA.

Chor Boogie

Chor Boogie

“My art is emotional landscapes of a melodic symphony through color therapy, a street romantic voodoo.” A shopping cart, piloted by a middle-aged male transient wearing long, shaggy auburn-hair, rattles down Market Street.

DAFIND: Jason Limon

DAFIND: Jason Limon

The artist himself, however, remains hesitant to apply a label to his work. Indeed he should be. Limon’s work; at times whimsical, at times haunting, defies base description and refuses to be pigeon-holed....

The sun starts to set on Los Angeles illuminating the dust that hangs between buildings. Trash swirls in a parking lot, scraping asphalt to run free with temperate winds that dash around the side of an old brick building that faces an artists new vision. Born from prolific dreams that haunt him two weeks at...
