The Inspiring Work of LA Artist Calvin Clausell Jr.

Growing up in Los Angeles, art has always been first for Calvin. From childhood he found himself sketching every chance he got. Loving the idea of bringing life to paper, he gravitated towards charcoal and graphite. Teaching himself shading techniques by observing human expression and emotion.

He began oil painting after reading the book “The Artist’s Way.” “That book helped reshape my perspective as an artist, branching out and trying different mediums lead me to oil painting.” – Calvin

Since beginning oil painting in 2016, he’s continued to expand on ideas and techniques. Shooting film photography, he brings images to life on canvas. Most recently creating a new series titled AFRICAN GIANT, where he highlights the black Kings around him, showcasing the strength in vulnerability.
