Conrad Ruiz

Conrad Ruiz or "Conradical" is a painter that lives and works in the Los Angeles area. He received his masters where I did my undergrad- California College of the Arts (and Crafts). He is inspired by pop culture, Hollywood cinema, and chaotic climactic explotions. His work is definately mesmerizing and comical but at the same time he deals with popular notions of class, race and gender.
