      by Justin Van Hoy

      A visually intoxicating book highlighting new work by contemporary artists who are aesthetically and regionally joined through a variety of mediums and demographics. By showcasing unknown and emerging artists alongside established icons who all call California home, MILK AND HONEY recognizes the fact that region and lifestyle directly influence the working process and ultimately the state of contemporary imagery.

      In the same spirit as Roger Gastman and Jeffrey Deitch's recent seminal MOCA show: Art in the Streets, MILK AND HONEY celebrates a group of contemporary artists with roots across various areas, including graffiti art, surf, and skate culture, and other uniquely Californian influences. As is evident in that highly acclaimed museum show—as well as the current Pacific Standard Time Show throughout Los Angeles—California affects trends and sets the stage nationally and internationally for some of the most creative art being made in the world today.

      More than 50 artists featured, including: Ed Ruscha, Ed Templeton, Cleon Peterson, Megan Whitmarsh, Sage Vaughn, RETNA, Piero Golia, and Ye Rin Mok.

      Justin Van Hoy (1981-2012) was a designer, artist, and curator based in Los Angeles, California. His studio, The Dutch Press, created original graphics, design, and branding for innovative entities such as RVCA, R77, OBEY, Giant, Falcon Motorcycles, and Gagosian Gallery. He was also a co-founder of THIS, an art gallery in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

      AMMO Books publishes provocative, one-of-a-kind titles on the visual arts and pop culture. With a focus on great design, thoughtful writing, and exquisite printing, they celebrate the work of unique designers, photographers, illustrators, and artists.
