Artist Color Palette: Clare Rojas

One of my long-time favorite artists, Clare Rojas‘ paintings and installations are sweetly nostalgic, but not entirely pure either; they are a modern mish-mash of street and folk art. Her work is also associated with the hugely influential Mission School that produced such greats as the Barry McGee (aka Lydia Fong), Margaret Kilgallen, Geoff McFedridge, Steve Powers, Shepard Fairey and the fantastic Beautiful Losers film.

Definitely interesting color palettes used in this work. I also like seeing presence of music in her work, which is apt, as Clare has released five albums under the name Peggy Honeywell. She often performs on the opening night of her shows.
