Hollywood’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 Hollywood that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I have been interested in making art for as long as I can remember. I am fortunate that my family has always been very supportive of this; my mom likes to tell an anecdote of how she let 3-year old me draw a “mural” on the outside of our apartment walls in Virginia. Read more>>
