Greetings! I have a LOT of colorful, emotive expressionist art in all sizes and at all prices. Find me at the Elysian Theater...Caleb Ballard is an American artist, writer and musician. A native Kentuckian who has lived in Los Angeles since 1986, Caleb is strongly influenced by Russian expressionism, magic realism, constructionism, American folk art, religious iconography, and the Joy of Cooking.
He paints in loose brushstrokes and eschews detail in favor of suggestive juxtaposition, with disparate visual narratives interleaving. Many suggest the aftermath of a high impact event, though it’s never clear whether the disturbance occurred in the material realm or in some ethereum. He took up painting 4 years ago and is preoccupied with the relationship between trauma and wonder.
