I’ve been a big fan of the work of Chris Turnham for a long while now, ever since I wrote about his work back in 2007. Then last year I found out he had moved to my home town of Los Angeles. We wrote a piece about Chris over on Los Angeles, I’m Yours which gives some insight into his move from Seattle. Since our interview, Chris has definitely found a love for L.A., making it the focus of a new show which is appropriately called Eastside LA.
The show opens Thursday, Nov. 7 from 6 to 9pm at Hemingway and Pickett where he’ll be featuring some really beautiful pieces of buildings from around the area, like the iconic dry cleaners above. Chris was kind enough to give us a piece for the DWP which I’m thrilled about. It’s a gorgeous pice of art that has such a wonderful color palette and so many great fonts.
