L.A. Crawford is a multidisciplinary artist currently based out of Baltimore Maryland, who employs painting, printmaking, and sculptural elements within their works. With a background in oil painting, their works range from casting multiples to large scale installations that explore Suburbia, gender roles, modernity and how we construct reality through the lens of architecture. Found objects, construction materials and casts of architectonic forms are assembled together to create an amalgamation of meaning and critic on how contemporary culture adopts its lineage from historical forms of suppression. Crawford received their B.F.A. from University North Carolina at Greensboro in painting (2017) and M.F.A. from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Mount Royal School of Art interdisciplinary program (19). They have participated in residencies at the Siena Art Institute, in Siena Italy and have recently returned from an internship in Denver Colorado working with the Museum of Outdoor Arts on an immersive art installation.
Crawford is currently employed as a teacher’s assistant to the undergrad sculpture department at MICA and as the facilities assistant manager with the Mount Royal department.
