Artist Lari Pittman has been a fixture in the LA art scene for some 40 years. His work has shown at every major museum in LA. Now he has a new exhibition at the Hammer called “Declaration of Independence.” It’s a retrospective on his prolific career.
Two years ago, Press Play met him in his studio, a large white space tucked away in an unassuming office park in Glendale. It was cavernous, big enough to hold his massive 10 feet wide paintings.
