Dear Diary: Nimai Kesten

Art Nerd LA has been on the scene meeting some pretty awesome LA-based artists.  Last week we did a studio visit with artist Nimai Kesten and this week we have a Dear Diary from him!  Nimai hails from New York but has lived and worked in LA for over 10 years.  He is a self-taught conceptual artist that explores the relationship between art, politics, religion and institutional corruption.  Here’s a day in the life of Nimai and you should check out his work online: nimaikesten.com [my favorite piece is his polished bronze gun crucifix]

After getting out of the water I noticed tar on the beach. I often collect tar to incorporate into my pieces
