About Ray Monde

These latest works are inspired by the streets of Los Angeles and the people who shape the suburbs around them.

Created for The Other Art Fair Los Angeles 2020 and now being showcased as part of the Online Studios, they capture the heat and jammed brilliance of the daylight.

All the titles of the works are driven by incredible LA poets including Wanda Coleman, Randall Jarrell, Bertolt Brecht, DJ Waldie, Garrett Hongo and Dana Gioia.

Some of the streets and suburbs that influenced these artworks include Sloan Street, Compton; Douglas Street, Angelino Heights; Alonzo Avenue, Encino; Zelzah Avenue, Encino; Copa de Oro Road, Bel Air and North Anita Avenue, Brentwood.
