A film made by the artist RETNA and long time collaborator G. Lewis Heslet in which Los Angeles native RETNA talks about his inspiration behind painting "The Falcon Before and After - 2013" and "Para Mi Gente, Los Pintores de Nuestra Alma" at The Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art's Grand Ave Location for their 2013 Gala.
RETNA also discusses his experience with the Louis Vuitton Young Arts Program in which he was a mentor and helped the teens produce three canvas' focusing on their view of what it is like to be an adolescent, what it is like to be a teen, and what it is like to be an adult. The paintings were unveiled at MoCA's Teen Night, which is an event organized and run by teens in the program for their peers.
