Artist Lisa Bella Bryson of Ramona said she has stepped into the political fray with a new series of paintings.
The classically trained artist and illustrator said she usually focuses on expressionistic portraits but the charged political atmosphere and hotly contested election inspired a different direction.
“The economic and political climate, along with the verbal sparring between the candidates, elevates the election to that of a battle between champion and challenger, and the boxing motif became a natural fit,” she said. “The candidates are stylized with a nod to the political propaganda art of the early 20th century with a more realized and distressed Uncle Sam caught in the middle.”
Bryson said she is happy to be back in Ramona sharing her art with the community after spending the past three years in the Southwest studying art and art history.
The artist has work on display at the Spanish Village in Balboa Park. For more information, see LBellaBryson.com, or contact her at Lisa@LBellaBryson.com.
