Mark Bradford is an LA artist that grew up and still currently resides in South Central Los Angeles. His practice emerged from many environmental inputs. Growing up around a family of seamstresses and working at his mother's hair salon before going off to art school, Bradford's use of materials and sensitivity to the imminent characteristics of these materials appears to have evolved from these influences to his development.

Arriving in Los Angeles in 1968, Kent Twitchell’s impact on the mural movement was considerable. Many of his realism murals can still be seen around Los Angeles, although many fell victim to graffiti and weather deterioration over the last 15 years. Chances are you have seen some of these murals but never realized who was responsible. In 2008, Twitchell settled a lawsuit against 12 defendants and the U.S. Government for painting over a 70 –foot-tall landmark mural he had painted of Ed Ruscha.
