ABOUT THE JUROR 

 

Max Presneill is an artist and a curator based in Los Angeles. An abstract painter, he has shown globally, with works that explore sub-cultural iconography, masculine identity and mortality. He has exhibited throughout the world and is represented by Patrick Painter, Inc. in Los Angeles, TW Fine Art in Brisbane, Australia, ICFA in Beijing, China, Gallery Lara in Tokyo, as well as the Durden & Ray collective in Los Angeles.
