The work of LA native and architectural painter David Jonason has a few recurring subjects — Craftsman bungalows, Santa Fe sanctuaries, and Moderne mansions. Pictured here are a few of his paintings from the exhibit Modernism in Silver Lake at ghettogloss a few years ago.

Compare Jonason’s work to the paintings of Warner Williams and Danny Heller — all three are SoCal-based, and all three visually ruminate on Modern residential architecture.

  1. Wow – another great find, Maya! It looks just as much if not more SoFla than SoCal, but really dig the rigidity of the lines, and the texture created by the fracturing technique.

  2. Hee, this connotes so many different things to me, from Art Deco and Italian Futurism to Palm Springs retirement condos and 80s motel art, but I freaking love it! He does commissions, too — I wonder how he’d handle OTR’s architecture? With gradients and candy colors?!? I’d love to see that.
