Join Salim Moore and Side Street Projects’ teaching artists to explore the fluid world of water-based media for drawing and painting. This experimental project will feature creative applications for pigments and dyestuffs collected from waterways across LA County. The artists will demonstrate ink-making processes and instruct visitors on the various methods of drawing with wild inks.
About the Artist
Salim Moore is a visual artist who is currently thinking about fantasy and its limitations and possibilities through drawing, painting, and printmaking. In his work he places himself, his friends, and others in situations where real life and imaginary experiences overlap. He finds inspiration in folk tales, ballads, and the little moments of everyday living.
Moore was born in Pasadena, CA, which is located in the unincorporated foothills of Los Angeles. He received his BA in Art History from Reed College in 2011 and his MFA from the Painting & Drawing Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He currently works at the Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College.
