Art World: Word To Mother

SCOUT is always scouting the contemporary art world for inspiration. There are so many small galleries with artists doing amazing work worldwide. Right now we have our eyes on London-based artist Word To Mother, who currently has an exhibition titled California Coming Home at White Walls gallery in San Francisco. Word To Mother's inspiration for this series of mixed media on canvas works comes from his childhood visit to California in 1996. Read his personal statement below:

"When I first visited California it was a time in my life when things were much more simple, for me personally and for society as a whole. Technology was progressing rapidly but was yet to overcomplicate day to day life. People’s actions were still integral to how they were perceived by others. Nowadays people are able to create a persona online of how they would like to be seen by the rest of the world, none of which is necessarily true. These works are my reaction to the dramatically changing social environment in which I find myself."

The exhibition runs till December 7, 2013 and is definitely worth a visit if you're in the state. Click here for more details
