Juxtapoz Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Evan Pricco will present the “Southern California Shaped” panel to explore how the Southern California skate and surf scene has shaped the next generation of art featuring Sage Vaughn, Robin Eisenberg, Albert Reyes and Daniel Gibson.
Sage Vaughn is an American artist best known for his graphic collage-like paintings. He creates narratives through overlaying depictions of the natural world atop spaces emblematic of human civilization. Vaughn’s work incorporates themes and aesthetics common in street art, such as drips from vertical spraying, stencils, and tattoo art.
Robin Eisenberg is a LA based artist known for her vivid, neon color palette and raw character illustrations are highly influenced by the people and colors of Southern California. Shaped by her environment growing up in spending time drawing and people watching at the beach and skate parks, she has brought her illustrations to collaborations with Vans, Thrasher and numerous music videos.
Albert Reyes was born in the Los Angeles suburb of Panorama City in 1971 and grew up in the working class neighborhood of El Sereno. Having been known to create artwork out of anything from what he has in his pockets to whatever he can find walking through his neighborhood. He has also shown in a gallery along with a painting by Picasso. These same strange dualities and juxtapositions are highly prevalent in his work, which tackles both conceptual and graffiti art.
LA Based artist Daniel Gibson grew up in El Centro Ca. and other surrounding towns that border Mexicali B.C. Gibson’s output is bred by his indispensable draw towards creation, something he views as a therapeutic and expressive flow of visions and beliefs, real life situations and overwhelming dreams, comprised of a combination of elements incomparably extricated with a whiff of vato attitude.
