Diana Hobson has been producing energetic abstract art in Los Angeles for nearly 50 years. Her presence in the arts communities of both cities has shaped her bi-coastal identity and her work.
Her early inspirations and influences included El Greco, Jackson Pollock, and Franz Klein, but she has long since developed her own sensibility and style. Her works, while abstract, tend to reference real ideas and stories that are alluded to in the title of each piece. Her work is a study in color and its affect on psychological states.
Her standing as an L.A. abstract artist is evident in her close connection to the community in which she paints. This is Diana's west coast studio space. It is open to the public for viewing, with much of her work being made available to interested parties.
