The [ahr-tuh-zen] Project

  1. Over the last 8 months, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to document the inspiring talent of Los Angeles artist, Dave Lefner. I’ve always enjoyed the visceral quality of his work, but now have a very fond appreciation for this incredibly passionate, dedicated and humble artisan.

    Dave chooses the rarely used medium of reduction linocuts to express his love for the City of Angels as well as preserve the history of it’s ever changing urban landscape. Whether it’s found in the extreme shadows cast from a broken neon sign at midday or in the intricate web of power lines crisscrossed overhead, Los Angeles provides him the perfect inspiration for his detailed linoleum block prints.

    If you enjoy the short documentary, please pass it on.
