This is how I think of each artist and why I like them. Please feel free to give me suggestions of artists for me to check out!
  1. Bruce Nauman
    2ea8790e 9ba3 4021 bd0a 1ed46c8a8c8c
    He's the bad art student nobody ever got but always admired.
  2. Jim Hodges
    04be621c 01d4 4d10 a96d 30b79f79e1dc
    The sensitive introvert who expresses sincerity and fragility through his artworks.
  3. Karl Haendel
    88ffed95 4980 4559 9c2d ecd35ed7a0f5
    The overly-intellectual in the nicest way possible. He makes commentaries about history is constructed. The pregnant yoga series was a commentary about LA and their obsession to be fit.( He was my professor)
  4. Glenn Ligon
    69df0183 50e1 4f41 9944 3e0551e2e164
    An African American artist juxtaposes history, literature, and visual arts with his own life.
  5. Richard Tuttle
    Ea585ffb 97fc 4518 96d9 1478eefa010c
    The philosopher or the dreamer. He brings emotions to the most banal and basic art materials.
  6. Agnes Martin
    457f0aca 299b 4eca 9132 2a57e5aad1b5
    Always in deep contemplating about the meaning of life. Her artworks showed her attempt to construct systems with the most purest and underrated feelings. I think she achieved.
  7. Mark Bradford
    De49ee40 e56f 4876 bd72 328c7e81b59a
    Juxtaposes highly abstract paintings and pop culture beautifully. Makes a commentary about mass consumption and South Los Angeles.
  8. Wangchi Mutu
    6028e259 983d 42a9 8f3a 737f5fae813d
    African American artist who interweave African myths and sci-fi to develop alternate realities for Africans and the people of African myths.
  9. Do Ho Suh
    1d31c42a c054 48ff 818d 5ebab12baae9
    A Korean artist immensely homesick and attempt to assimilate into the American culture. He fights against conventional scales and provokes our fragility as human beings. As we become more global, it becomes harder for us to have a "permanent" home.
  10. Ai Wei Wei
    153c70ef c6f3 4d4c abcb 4855e4bf1d69
    The Chinese political activist artist, he brings what happened during the great Chinese economic boom and how globalization affected Chinese families. This installation was a commentary on how quickly China developed. It was common for Chinese families to own 3 legs stools only to be replaced by cheap metal and plastic stools.
  11. John Baldessari
    C4ec08ab 1587 4d7f 98a9 6f046c418000
    The badass Californian conceptual artist, known for disturbing the interaction between the artwork and the viewer.
