#SDCreatives: the local artists who inspire us

Through a mix of mediums, formats and perspectives local artists illuminate the unknown, color the previously black-and-white and add depth to our understanding of our surroundings, our lives, circumstances and more. Through our research process for the Thought provokers series we’ve come across so many works of art that have inspired us and we’d like to share some of those great examples of visual and performing arts, photography and other creative works with you below.

I have really been into double exposures recently and I wanted to give it a shot. This is two different images edited together. I used one of my dance shots I took at @lacma and a bokeh shot I created using rain on a car windshield. I was having a lot of fun with this editing technique, that I will for sure keep playing around with it. Keep creating and exploring! . . .

Some sights are so out of this world, you have to have witnesses to prove what you’ve seen is real.
