Trent Christensen is an artist based in Los Angeles. His work is primarily composed of paintings and drawings. He is heavily influenced by folk, outsider, and naive art. The work often contains themes that lightly address religion, masculinity, mysticism, and the role of humanity in the modern moment. His work is often comprised of small doodles that are captured in his sketchbooks. Using a highly patterned, odd, and often joyful aesthetic, that emphasizes speed and rawness, Trent collects reactions to the stimuli in his surrounding environment. Often these are auditory, interpersonal or visual observances that can point to larger phenomena. the small drawings/doodles are then used as the beginnings of larger compositions/paintings. They are then redrawn, flattened, abstracted and massaged into what, to him, feels like an appropriate reaction/ interpretation of those collected moments.
