Taube Museum of Art features Arcane

The Taube Museum of Art’s Main Gallery features Arcane
a series expressionistic mixed-media paintings by artist Chase Lock

Lock is originally a North Dakota native, but now working in Los Angeles, CA. His body of work is inspired by the textural value found in graffiti. He creates large scale paintings primarily in oil, bringing graffiti into the fine art realm balancing the sometimes chaotic nature of graffiti with the finesse of the fine art world.
