The Los Angeles Drawings of Susan Logoreci

Artist Susan Logoreci creates intricate colored-pencil on paper drawings of cities all over the world, but with an emphasis on her home metropolis, Los Angeles. Her combination of detail and abstraction renders the urban environment both inviting and warped. It's a fitting style for our city, as many would consider L.A. itself to be invitingly warped...

Most of the works featured here are very large, with 4' x 6' being a standard size for many of the works. The size translates well to public art-- her works form the basis for mosaics that will appear at Metro's new Expo Line stations in 2016. You can learn more about the artist on her website.
