inside creation, that is the driving force. I create art installations
that infuse the environment with vibrant colors, fashion and dance.
The work seeks to bring you an energy that is created by the moment
the moment. I want to create a space where you can have it all:
good friends and beauty all around."
and raised in Summerland, California, Jerico Woggon is a painter,
installation artist and event designer whose collaborative art installations
appeared at Burning Man, Coachella, and numerous other art events
and festivals. He lives and works in the downtown Arts District in Los
Woggon has been heavily influenced by the art of his grandfather,
Bill Woggon (creator of the 1945 Archie comic book supermodel
Katy Keene), and
by Southern California custom car culture. Woggon initally trained
as an automotive refinish technician and eventually worked
for promotional vehicle
specialists Prototype Source (Hershey Kiss Mobile, Planters Peanut
Hot Rod, and the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile). It was while
he was still working in the
automotive industry that Woggon began planning full-fledged art
happenings and parties.
After ten years, Woggon’s parties (including 2001: A Dance Odyssey
and his epic Halloween parties) bred a cult following and and grew to include
thousands of guests. After designing concepts for each event space, Woggon
became interested in creating large scale art installations. One especially
successful installation, “Year of the Snake,” is a 138
foot long UV black light sensitive painting on canvas that was
featured at Burning
Man in 2003, and is still one of the most popular examples of
art on the Internet. (It is ranked five on Google).
Currently, Woggon has focused all his energy on his art projects,
and traces of his grandfather’s influence and his work with cars and party
planning are still evident in his super-charged color palate and graphic
use of lines. His current exhibition at 2223 Restaurant and Bar, “My
Robot Ran Away with My Cherry in San Francisco,” is his first
solo show of paintings.
