Husband and wife team’s nature-branded art collective, Clamdiggin’–the darling of LA designers–gets LA exhibition.
Clamdiggin’ is more than an artist’s moniker—its founders, artist Kevin Johnson and designer Alexandra Fisher, describe it as “15-year relationship with love and art.” Founded in 1999, Johnson and Fisher describe themselves as being “into art but not the art world.” Since moving to LA from Chicago in 2008, Johnson and Fisher have built their reputation creating original pieces for the interiors of designer Kelly Wearstler. Clamdiggin’ artwork will appear in Wearstler’s new coffee table book, Hue. (Ammo books, $49) But for those of us who can’t hire the likes of Kelly Wearstler to design our homes, Clamdiggin is now being featured at The Melrose Project, a West Hollywood gallery near the Pacific Design Center. Pieces include mural, sculpture, painting and drawing. Nature is the star here, both animal and botanical. We are particularly fond of the Indian Chief’s headdress and the Noah’s Ark of a visual alphabet.
