Prints in 3-5 business days
"Dave Tourjé is an L.A. native whose amalgam of multi-cultural inspiration is called upon in his artistic production. He grew up in the gang-riddled Northeast L.A./Highland Park area,... More > where gang members were called The Avenues and their thug mentality prevailed. The time he spent as an extreme sports enthusiast (he was an early arrival to vertical skateboarding, snowboarding, and an avid surfer) made him fast on his feet and able to fluidly negotiate difficult terrain. Living briefly in Mexico City while very young found him drinking in the work of great muralists – the legacy of artists like Diego Rivera and David Siqueiros sated his penchant for art made “for the people.” And his musical background as a player in the post-punk band The Dissidents added an unpredictable, almost irreverent tone, albeit a populist one." -excerpted from the essay by Annie Wharton< Less
