If you live in this town, you've probably heard about the rising-star artist America Martin. Known for her wildly colorful, large-scale paintings that boast an unshakable stamina, while, at the same time, maintaining a quiet, unaffected nonchalance, the L.A.-born painter works out of a massive Silver Lake studio, overflowing with gleaming buckets of paint and unfinished projects that already pack a serious punch.
Plus, her growing fan base already includes everyone from esteemed critics to affluential art collectors, to some of Hollywood's most in-the-know creatives, including Kirsten Dunst and Giovanni Ribisi. Ahead, come with us as we tour her insanely rad studio, take a sneak peek at her latest works, and talk with her about inspiration, style, and what it's like to have her work hanging in a handful of Hollywood living rooms.
