Van Nuys

Van Nuys, Ronald J. Llanos

Project Description

Llanos depicts a series of Valley characters amidst the commercial hubbub of Victory Boulevard and Van Nuys Boulevard.

Artist Statement

“My inspiration for the poster project was to capture small vignettes or ‘snap shots’ of different people around the corner of Victory and Van Nuys Boulevard. Urban environments and people are a part of my own personal work. I also have a love for comics and artists that use drawing as a journalistic medium. The overall design was to imply a sort of comic book page layout”
