The historic Rose Bowl stadium, is located in the Arroyo Seco of Pasadena, California. My painting, "Arroyo Psychos" celebrates all of the madness and pagaentry that an afteroon of college football entails. The six central figures in the foreground are a few of my "Arroyo Psycho" friends and I. As lifelong UCLA Burins fans, we have tailgated through good times and bad, celebrating exhilirating wins and commiserating over heartbreaking loses.
Frank Strasser is a self-taught artist. He was born in Culver City, California, in 1954. As a grammar school student, he displayed gifts for writing, music, drawing and rebellion. One year, he received an art set for Christmas. Thus began a lifelong love affair with painting.
He continued experimenting in high school, took a few art classes in college and devoured books on art and literature. At 21, in 1976, he earned a BA in English from Loyola Marymount University. After graduation his real education began.
At 24, Frank quit a menial job, sold his VW Bug, bought a Eurail pass and a one way ticket to London. Utlimately, he toured nine countries, visiting every art museum and empty church he discovered along the way.
