Illustrated by Laron Bickerstaff
Laron Bickerstaff creates radiant portraiture and stream-of-consciousness text-based artwork. Bickerstaff communicates with American Sign Language and is deeply aware of the visual characteristics of language. In his work, he mixes his own observations with a pop-influenced love of the brand names that populate everyday life: celebrities, stores, food and drink, and institutions. Bickerstaff is known for his use of bright geometric shapes to assemble his abstract and stylized figures and scenes.
Bickerstaff’s ASL font is used here to represent SFMOMA.
Creativity Explored is a studio in San Francisco that partners with artists with developmental disabilities to celebrate and nurture the creative potential in all of us. Creativity Explored was founded by
Florence and Elias Katz, an artist and a psychologist duo who believed that art is essential to life. Throughout their history, Creativity Explored has facilitated the art careers of hundreds of disabled artists — and changed the art world along the way. Their artists have seen their work exhibited in museums, galleries, and art fairs in over 14 countries (and now SFMOMA!). Their San Francisco studios are the center of a thriving creative community where all are welcome.
