Raised in Southern California, Cody Lusby received a scholarship to Laguna College of Art and Design, where he earned his BFA in Painting and Drawing. Though a skilled realist, he introduces abstract elements into his works to convey motion, depth, and emotion. At some level an homage to the canonical California splash paintings of David Hockney—though with a figure thrown in (perhaps literally)— What a Wonderful Splash shows his ability to capture a split second in paint.
