I always enjoy to see somebody's impression of a city, and Chris Turnham's one is very peculiar.
He moved to L.A. form Portland three years ago, and started observing what was around him, the city and its many different neighborhoods, each one with its different architectural style and structural appearance.
What came out is a serie of 20 prints capturing as many Los Angeles distinctive spots, from villas to taco-stands: the graphic effect that characterizes every piece (it's reminding me a lot of illustrations and animated works from the 60's) is made from the layers of screenprint technique, which limits every print to maximum 6 colors. The final effect is just stunning.
