At just 24-years-old, artist Vanessa Prager has already accomplished a great deal of success with her drawings and paintings. Not surprisingly though, as it seems that what the young L.A. resident lacks in formal education she makes up for with hard work and ambition.
Her work includes canvases splashed with rich colors and drawings executed on music sheets with ball point pen. Subjects often involve a cast of friends in offbeat situations, lending a youthful feel not unlike that found in Elizabeth Peyton's work.
With five years of exhibitions under this upstart's vintage belt, as well as notable magazine collaborations and a long list of eminent collectors, it seems safe to say her luck will not be running out.
Check out her work at the upcoming group show at Ghettogloss Gallery or watch a video of her painting a young man named Taylor.
