Los Angeles is big. Most describe it as sprawling, and this description is so accurate once you’ve spent a few days in Los Angeles. It’s not laid out top to bottom, but rather left to right. It’s almost like a book. A city of chapters and narratives. Right now, there’s not many artists who are writing a story quite like Ozzie Juarez. Juarez, as a painter and curator, and as an incubator, tells the story of LA’s modern history to the rest of the globe, and to himself. It’s LA’s story, and it’s different from any other story told today.
