Biography   Lari Pittman


Based in Los Angeles, he is an abstract painter whose acrylic work is highly decorative as well as figurative, which he regards as a rebellion against the 'puritanism of modernism' that is so fearful of decoration and any suggestion of realism. His tight, all over the ground imagery in blocky format is highly sexual.

He is openly homosexual and multicultural, an American and Columbian and had an early career in interior design. He has had long-time involvement in the Los Angeles arts community and had a brush with death in 1985 when he was shot by a robber.

In 1996, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art held a mid career survey of his paintings that traveled to the Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston.
