California Artist Series, Part I | Dana Hooper
By June 30, 2010

dana hooper 3 California Artist Series, Part I | Dana Hooper art
Artists have long been inspired by the dramatic landscapes of California, giving The Golden State a unique and rich artistic history. Among the many art movements to develop out of California over the years, I’ve always been in love with one in particular: the Bay Area Figurative Movement. Initiated at the height of Abstract Expressionism in the 1950′s, the multi-wave movement sought to abandon non-objective abstraction, seeking a return to more figurative painting, specifically characterized by the colors and light indicative of California’s landscapes. Some of my favorite artists are those who pioneered this movement, namely Richard Diebenkorn, and Wayne Thiebaud. Spanning multiple decades, the movement continues to inspire contemporary California painters.

Veerakeat Tongpaiboon is a prolific painter originally from Thailand who now calls the San Francisco area home. Among some of my favorite subjects by Veerakeat are his luscious sushi, and colorful edibles. Painting around 250 paintings a year, and roughly 1-2 a day, Veerakeat admits that only about 20% of them end up in galleries, while the rest end up being completely painted over!
