With clean lines and a flat, limited color palette, Emily Fromm uses a style reminiscent of vintage cartoons and comic books to illustrate contemporary urban landscapes. Having been raised in the outskirts of Los Angeles, she was heavily influenced by the over-the-top yet seedy aesthetic of the American West, and often highlights signage, architecture and the iconic style of the region in her paintings. She applies a graphic style that is familiar and nostalgic to these settings, incorporating imagery that is mundane and often low brow, to contrast these grandiose scenes with everyday life.
