Live painting by John Park


John Park is an artist and teacher living in Los Angeles. He received his training at the Rhode Island School of Design where he studied classical drawing, painting, sculpture and anatomy. His current series is an attempt at reconciling these classical influences with the more urban aesthetic of the Pop Surrealist movement. The paintings themselves are executed in a live, public setting usually in one evening and then taken back to his studio for further reworking and detail work. He teaches drawing and painting at Concord High School in Santa Monica, has three cats and one Tree.

Live painting by Ashley Bowers

Ashley Bowers is an artist of many mediums. She graduated from California State University Long Beach in 2009 with a BFA in drawing and painting, but has done everything from painting, to sculpture, to costume design. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles as an artist, a live painter, and a fashion model. A Burner by blood, her father Jim Bowers started going to Burning Man when she was a kid. He encouraged her artistic talents & leadership qualities, & always included her in the construction of his own art & BM grant projects. Her work has been shown in several group shows throughout southern California, but the “Boogaloo” art car project, which debuted at Burning Man 2011, was her biggest project to date.  When it comes to her painting, her style and inspiration is constantly evolving.  Being a woman of multiple races, and an interesting life’s history, has inspired her to explore the identity of not only herself, but all women. In an effort to combine her passions for art and fashion, she incorporates the use of lace and other textiles into the work and has even sewn these embellishments directly onto the canvas.
