Influenced by psychedelic art from the 1960s and 1970s, contemporary Los Angeles-based artist, Steven Harrington has built a following with his timeless pop-inspired style and mystical, contemplative imagery. Co-founder of California’s National Forest Design alongside fellow artist Justin Krietemeyer, Harrington’s latest works exude a decidedly West Coast influence of landscape and culture and include everything from screen prints and sculptures to large-scale installations, skateboards and more. In addition to recent collaborations with the likes of Ace Hotel Palm Springs and Generic Surplus, Harrington has also collaborated with Burton and Parisian label, Sixpack. While prepping for the debut of his latest exhibition, Harrington provided us with a glimpse inside of his sketchbook for the most recent edition of Pen & Paper. “Insideout” — Harrington’s upcoming show — is set to open at LA’s Known Gallery with a special reception on August 18 from 8-11 p.m. PDT and will remain on display through September 1, 2012.
