Don Suggs is often called “an artist’s artist.” For more than 45 years, he has been a popular fixture in the Los Angeles art scene–as a teacher at UCLA, an editor, and a prolific and exhibited artist engaged in a wide array of forms and mediums. Our upcoming October 11th auction features a striking example of Suggs’s art: Two Fridas (from Matrimony Series) (2) (2006), Lot 169, a work that consists of paired tondos–a circular canvas format that dates to the Renaissance. Los Angeles Modern Auctions recently spoke with Suggs about his artistic process.
