“Transplants is what we we - those non native Los Angeleno’s call ourselves. Los Angeles was settled by transplants - those moving from the east with big dreams of the wild west. Each day in Los Angeles brings an influx of new residents, which brings new energy and excitement. Everywhere one turns there is someone importing innovation whether it be in art, technology, design, engineering, transportation, social services, human rights and so on and so on. I feel lucky to be surrounded by a population that has been shaped by so many different backgrounds and walks of life, all brought together to nurture fresh ideas into our fantastic city.”
These words were submitted to Hartford Prints by Andrea Denike Martinez. I met Rory Gale at yesterday’s International Printers Fair from Hartford Prints and am now the proud owner (and transplant) of the print that is associated with Andrea’s description of the city I moved to a year ago.
