Floyd Strickland is an emerging multi-disciplined artist from Los Angeles, Ca. Drawing inspiration from his childhood environment, Strickland often uses realistic figures that are juxtaposed with cartoons creating dream like paintings.

Strickland’s works has evolved, as he delves into the work of many classical painters. Early on, inspired by contemporary pop art, Strickland worked primarily with acrylics, creating larger portraits of celebrities. He has transitioned into mainly working with oil.

His work has evolved and taken a more personal turn, digging deep into his childhood and the struggles of growing up and being educated in Watts in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Strickland’s work is often filled with symbolism that refer back to his childhood and the tragedies of a lost child hood.
