Landon Pointer (b.1999)
is an Oakland-based painter pushing the boundaries of traditional art, exploring the intricacies of human relationships. Focused on the nuanced connections between youth and adulthood, his canvas reflects the interplay of elements like sports, color, culture, and personal relationships.
Inspired by the multi-dimensional components shaping the human experience, Landon constructs immersive worlds where memories unfold with vibrant clarity. Childhood experiences of a nomadic lifestyle, driven by poverty and racism, provide the foundation for themes of race and social inequalities subtly woven into his art.
Reflecting on diverse facets of life, Landon finds solace in his artistic practice, turning each painting into a journey of insights and personal growth. His multimedia approach incorporates acrylics, oils, wax, sage, and aerosol, creating a rich and layered expression of his artistic vision.
