Cartwheel Art Tours Coverage: Neighborhood Explorations in Venice Beach, with Cartwheel Art Tours Host – Clinton Bopp
“Murals and Artist Studio ‘Bopping’ in Venice Beach”
Clinton Bopp, a painter, muralist, stone/wood carver, sculptor, designer, set designer, restorer and teacher, led groups for his Airbnb Open – Los Angeles, Neighborhood Explorations in Venice Beach on Thursday November 17th, that were curated and produced by Cartwheel Art Tours founder, Cindy Schwarzstein.
Clinton showed the group murals around Venice that he’s been curating and painting as collaborations with local and international street artists including Ralph Ziman (aka Afrika 47), Crisp, Duncan and Raphael Grischa. There was also a stroll along one of LA’s hottest streets in Venice beach “Abbot Kinney” which has some of the finest restaurants, unique art galleries (including C.A.V.E. Gallery, a favorite gallery of Cartwheel Art Tours, featuring the artwork of urban contemporary and street artists), prestigious wine shops and exciting nightlife, that’s evolved from a historical destination, to a place that has become a gathering place for west side residents and visitors.
There was also a walk through more alleys and main streets, for the group to explore while learning from Clinton about the works of international and local artist who painted murals in the area. The final stop was at the private artist studio of Ralph Ziman, where Clinton who collaborates often with Ralph, described their work together, while showing Ralph’s studio and his very unique work for “Ghosts South Africa,” “Ghosts Ethiopia,” and the “Resistance Project”.
