When you think of some of the most culturally diverse and renowned cities on earth, they all have one thing in common: art. From local galleries to life-size murals, a community full of art is a community full of culture. That’s why supporting the arts in your local community is a crucial part of building a legacy, exposing artists to bigger platforms, and providing them with greater opportunities. Today’s guest inherently understands the importance of celebrating creativity and educating and inspiring others, as he himself has been active on the scene for nearly 30 years. In the house today, we have the one and only Toons One, international artist, style writer, custom painter, fineline pinstriper, and original graffiti artist since 1982, right here in Los Angeles. Naturally gifted with a broad observation of the cultural landscape of the world in which we live, Toons’ creations embody a rich imagination and a soulful interpretation of everyday life. In today’s episode, he shares his journey with us, recognizes those who inspired and uplifted him along the way, and highlights the importance of supporting arts and culture in his home of Southern California. Toons believes that one of the biggest conundrums Southern California’s finest artists face is not being recognized for their achievements and he calls on not only institutions and the local municipality to step up and support the diverse and vibrant culture in LA, but the private sector too. Tune in for a rich and insightful conversation with one of LA’s finest exports who believes that supporting one another and creating movements is not only important but crucial for the future of art!
