Exhibition: The Troublemakers
About the Artists
Colette Miller created the Global Angel Wings Project in 2012, in the streets of Los Angeles, the City of Angels. They were painted to remind humanity that we are the angels of this earth. They are human sized interactive street art, wings that people take photos with and thus become part of the art. The first pair were painted illegally but the response was natural, immediate, and spontaneous – from people of all sorts and backgrounds, both those who were photographed and those who asked for the wings. Colette has painted wings globally – Kenya, Australia, Taiwan, France, Cuba, Juarez Mexico, and more, and many in the USA. Though some are commissioned and others gifted, the wings themselves are free to the world, never owned by anyone, not even Colette, though they are of her provenance and her work.

He studied drawing and painting at UCLA, and Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, with teachers that included Harry Carmean, Vernon Wilson, John Asaro, Peter Liashkov, among others.

Stephen Seemayer is a Los Angeles-born painter, filmmaker and performance artist. In a career spanning more than 40 years, he has mounted performances and exhibitions at galleries and museums across the United States. Using imagery drawn from anatomy, archaeology and arson, Seemayer confronts his audience with the question of what it means to be human in a dehumanizing society.
Christian Moeller is a sculptor and installation artist. He was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany where he lived and worked until he moved to the United States in 2001. Initially trained as a structural engineering draftsman and then as an architect, he came to art equipped with a pragmatic skill-set that would prove indispensable to his creative practice. His interactive work has been shown at museums, galleries and art festivals internationally. Many of his recent works can be seen as urban scale objects and installations which have found permanent homes in public spaces throughout the world, from Seattle to Singapore.

Lucy Eyears (b. 1992) lives and works in Los Angeles. Her paintings reflect the interplay between the external and internal worlds. She explores the idea of growth, and the connection between nature and our emotional states. Her work is influenced by color theory, and neo-expressionism. She deconstructs her imaginative still life with bright colors, expressive, broad brushstrokes, and abstract movements. Her process is intuitive, allowing instincts to guide her through each piece, finding forms and shapes as she works through different emotions.
Painting before he could speak, Yuri was born to artist parents who encouraged uncensored creative development from birth. Embracing spiritually political-eroticism, Yuri’s style has been coined ‘the edge of kink.’ For twenty years Yuri has provided artwork for television and film as well as has a character based on himself as controversial DTLA artist on Disney’s Good Trouble as ‘George Yuri Elwin.’
Los Angeles area artist for nearly 20 years. B.F.A in sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University. Born 1975, Died t.b.d.
Zac Hoffman, otherwise known as Loser Angeles, uses bold colors, sinuous lines, and well-endowed shapes to create a whimsical depiction of life on earth. His work draws on what he describes as ‘the oddness of the ordinary,’ gathering inspiration from the mundane happenings of everyday life. Hoffman was born in 1992 in San Clemente, CA, and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. He’s developed a distinct visual language with reoccurring characters and motifs, often including exaggerated depictions powerful women, clocks, and baseballs, perhaps highlighting the abundance of components weighing on the modern human. Using a variety of mediums and textures, he creates paintings that celebrate society’s run-of-the mill aspects on a monumental scale.
Lives and works in Los Angeles.
Raised in the Midwest, Richard McDowell is a painter, visual artist, writer, art curator and former gallery owner. Preferring to paint in a series, he enjoys all mediums from pencil, to crayola, to oil, in order to capture life on canvas.
His work is an attempt to understand the world in all its chaos and beauty. “If there was no chaos, there would be no need for art in the world, and I would not exist.”
