GARDEN CITY - A new series of paintings inspired by Pueblo del Rio

May 17, 2014 - July 13, 2014

“Garden City” is based on the Pueblo del Rio community in Los Angeles, built by Richard Neutra, Paul R Williams and others in 1941.  Davis explains, “The paintings represent the potential of art and performance in a low income community.” The Los Angeles based painter is known for his large-scale figurative canvases.

Noah Davis was born and raised in Seattle.  He studied painting at Cooper Union and has lived and worked in Los Angeles since leaving school.  He has an ongoing non-profit project titled Underground Museum.  His paintings are in the collections at the Hammer Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, The Hammer Museum, The Rubell Family Collection, SF MOMA, and LACMA to name a few.  This exhibit marks his debut in Leimert Park.
