Meet The Los Angeles Artist LG Williams

Hi LG, thanks for joining us today. Are you happier as a creative? Do you sometimes think about what it would be like to just have a regular job? Can you talk to us about how you think through these emotions?

Yes, I am a Los Angeles-American artist and global-nomadic creative. I enjoy the freedom and self-expression that comes with the calling. Being a self-professed ‘Capitalist Realist,’ post-consumer, post-truth, trans-dimensional artist is thrilling.

On most days, I’m simply broke and gobsmacked…

While I was satisfied and enjoying the freedom and self-expression that came with the life of an internationally recognized post-conceptual artist a few years ago, I also wondered what it would be like to have a regular day job. This curiosity is why, in 2016, I became the Founder and CEO of an entirely new creative venture or hyper-conceptual approach to art-world-building known as Prosperity Aesthetics™ International. With Prosperity Aesthetics™ International (PA™ for short), I could share and teach millions of confused but emerging young artists and miserable-but-incredibly-wealthy executives how to seek out and find true artistic and financial rewards in today’s ridiculously lucrative contemporary Art world….

Invoice (2023), Limited Edition Print With Charlie Colin, Francesco Siqueiros, and LG Williams


LOS ANGELES, February 8, 2023 — Erik David Gallery Beverly Hills is pleased to announce its pop-up exhibition during Felix 2023 Art Fair, with the launch of a recent collaborative, limited edition lithograph by LG Williams, Musician/Artist Charlie Colin, and Artist/Printmaker Francesco Siqueiros at The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, February 15–19, in Los Angeles. 

The pop-up will feature Invoice (2023), a groundbreaking examination of the dialectics of printmaking, by explicitly providing and representing for the first time the counterpoint to the historically vital ‘cancellation proof’: namely, the initial editioning invoice

A cancellation proof is typically the final print in an edition. This print is created by defacing the source printing plate or stone employed in making a print edition. The cancellation print’s purpose is to assure collectors that a ‘limited edition’ is truly limited by demonstrating that no further identical prints can ever be made from the existing material.  

While canceling and the primary purposes of creating cancellation proofs are well established and followed by most print publishers, the initial stage of print editioning, i.e., the initial print invoice or agreement itself, has never been brought to light or examined in and of itself—even though the invoice is the first essential element in producing professionally recognized print editions. Indeed, invoices signal new artistic potentials—the deepest feelings of creative joy any artist can summon.

By representing and presenting this never-seen-before essential step in the printmaking process—the print invoice—the artist’s collaborative adventure poignantly highlights the overlooked first step in the entire professional printmaking process. 

With this critical and particular stage of the printmaking practice now finally brought to light, the full scope of the printmaking process can now be fully understood and recognized by artists, printmakers, scholars, and collectors in the future.

LG Williams Appears In VoyageLA (Nov 2022)

LG Williams_VoyageLA_Nov 2002

Voyage LA: Today we’d like to introduce you to LG Williams. Hi LG, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.

LG Williams: I’ve been asked this question a lot during my adult daycare residency’s afternoon Arts and Crafts program—especially after my year-long, worldwide artist lecture tour and subsequent acceptance into the Post-Conceptual/Post-Commodity Revisionist-Art Hall of Fame in Carmel, CA. (By the way, the center just finished customizing and renaming their dumpster to honor my name and artistic legacy. The plaque on it reads, “In Honor of LG Williams: Everyman’s Trash.”)
