DESCRIPTION

Fifth Floor presents "Fresh Prints of L.A." new letterpress and screenprints by L.A. artists Charlie Carroll, David Lomeli, and Leslie Ross-Robertson. The opening coincides with Chinatown Design Night in conjunction with the Los Angeles Design Festival.

Charlie Carroll graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in 2010 and shortly after became one of the founders of clean {aesthecic}. The brand promotes and sells artist designed prints and t-shirts using sustainable and socially conscious methods. His drawings originate from his fascination with his urban surroundings and the stillness he experiences from the simple act of drawing the line.

David Lomeli is a Los Angeles based illustrator, graphic designer, and animator. He breathes life into his characters and designs through both hand drawn and digital techniques. He completed the Animation Program at The Academy of Entertainment Technology at Santa Monica College.

Leslie Ross-Robertson is an artist and designer based in Los Angeles. In 2001, she founded the contemporary design studio Modern Optic, creating prints and stationery inspired by modern visual culture, including custom design projects for Herman Miller, Knoll, and Steelcase. This year she founded Wavelength Press, where she produces limited edition, handmade letterpress prints on her Vandercook SP-20 cylinder proof press in collaboration with leading contemporary artists.
