About Alicia Loy Griffin

I live and work in SOLA (South Los Angeles). My Studio is surrounded by the multi-diversified communities of Crenshaw Village, Leimert Park, Baldwin Hills, View Park, Ladera Heights and Windsor Hills. New development is rapidly taking place: Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza (BHCP) and Marlton Square are becoming the incubator of new retail establishments. Site-specific, integrated diversified art works will be woven into the landscape of these communities in order to establish a vibrant visual environment. This will provide public places with civic distinction, as well as fostering meaningful connections between people and places in the 21st century cities of innovation.

I am motivated by architectural forms and geometric lines. They seem to super-impose themselves into space, forming shapes of complexity and objects of transformation. All manifesting into living structures.

My vision is to see my cor-ten steel and stainless steel Marquettes translated on a monumental scale. In order to create urban shelters in parks, sculptures in public places, all forming a catalyst link for solving creative solutions in development of projects for buildings and other structural concepts in urban environments and innovative global communities.
