Los-Angeles based artist Lari Pittman (b. 1952) is known for his exuberant, colorful, and graphically complex works. Six monumental illustrated books, each opening to more than four feet in width, contain 65 paintings by the artist. They draw from a variety of aesthetic traditions, ranging from decorative art and design to advertising and folk art. Combined with Pittman’s brilliant draftsmanship and acidic color, the images advance an astute and acerbic social commentary embedded in narratives rich with real and invented mythologies.

An interactive touchscreen was created, which was encased in an abstract structure. The experience allowed users to peruse all of the pages and zoom into the details of the high quality imagery.

A responsive companion website (above) was also produced and made available online here.
