    Artsy best decribes Alex Olson’s works as "abstract, but that’s not how she would choose to refer to them: “In fact, the way I approach painting is almost the opposite in that nothing is an abstraction of something else,” she says. “It literally is what it is.” Olson’s paintings aim to be exact records of how they were made, self-evident in their construction.

  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

Eduardo Lucero

Among fashionistas, Los Angeles designer Eduardo Lucero ('87) is a red carpet favorite, stemming in part from his celebration of the sensual Latin-American culture of his origins.

At his shop on Beverly Boulevard, Lucero crafts lovely, flattering, personalized couture gowns. In the front, the shop displays a rotating selection from the season's collection. In the back is Lucero's studio, complete with cutting tables, mannequins, glossy satins and exquisite deep velvets. His specialty: decidedly feminine evening wear. Burnout velvet halters and long, bias-cut skirts drape incredibly smoothly, and suits hug without strangling bodies.
The body that fits into these clothes needn't be emaciated - Lucero designs for unabashedly curvaceous women.

Over the years, Lucero has been involved with numerous runway shows and gala events. He presented new work during "Fashion Week in L.A." And his tie-dyed gown design set a glamorous tone at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios in Culver City. Gen Art Chicago, a leader in showcasing the newest emerging talent in fashion and art, held their 2nd annual Fresh Faces in Fashion runway show, which included Lucero along with the hottest new designers from Chicago, New York and Los Angeles in womenswear and accessories. Lucerno also won the Asia Pacific Young Fashion Designers Show in Hong Kong.
