East LA’s Thought-Provokers

LA has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.  Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around East LA that we hope you will check

Amir H. Fallah

I’ve always been interested in real stories and people. When I first began making art all of my work revolved around my personal experiences. Not all of it was self-portraits but it was certainly biographical. Read more>>

Will (Banana Cream) Gonzalez

I’ve played in many bands and gone through many phases of genres and I still love every bit of the different styles of music that I’ve come across or have been introduced to by friends, family and old band members. Read more>>

Diego Briones

Being from San Antonio, he has that “Texas twang”/Stevie Ray Vaughn flavor to his playing and after many nights of music-making in that loft in Lincoln Heights we decided to blend that musicality with Nathan’s voice which has now turned into “Gen Z”. Read more>>

Chi Hey Lee

I started to design surface patterns because one print had so much potential to be used in various products. It wasn’t easy in the beginning to adjust myself from work for hire situation to work for myself. Read more>>

Adrian Cox

The balancing act of teaching, curating, and painting became increasingly difficult, and I found myself spending more and more of my time working in the studio. So this past spring, I decided to make my studio practice full time and move to Los Angeles. Read more>>
