taxpayers and residents throughout the state of California.
Artist Kris Cunz,a
southland native, is a mid-career artist who has exhibited locally for
over 30 years. In addition to studio painting, his public murals
culminated in being awarded an “Artist in the Community” grant
(1995-1996) from the City of Los Angeles' Cultural Affairs Department
for his “Graffiti Abatement Art I” project; and, gaining recognition
from the Arts Commission for a Design Achievement Award. Since then, he
has concentrated on studio paintings which include abstracts, urban
landscapes and collaborative works with local graffiti artists. He
continues to work and live in Los Angeles.
A majority of the proceeds from the sale of Cunz's artworks will go towards supporting CLUE CA in their wonderful on-going work in the community.
