Sticks & Figures x George Hobbs
George Hobbs is a lover AND a fighter… His LOVE of art, photography, and film brought Hobbs to Los Angeles over thirty years ago. He moved to Venice Beach and pursued a career in filmmaking, where he honed his craft of telling stories with pictures. In 2016 Hobbs decided to FIGHT. Dismayed by the division surrounding him, he started his Stick Figure Wisdom series to express complex concepts with simple symbols, thus transcending language. Hobbs’ modern-primitive style combines the appeal of cartoons with wit and humor. He explores themes of love, religion, politics, relationships, and what it means to be human, all while loving the creative process and fighting against those who would try to destroy it. George Hobbs' photographs and sculptures show the same clever perspective of our tenuous connection to that which sustains us.
