This early work epitomizes the figurative style Clare Rojas was known for when she was closely associated with the Mission School in San Francisco. Along with her husband Barry McGee, Clare Rojas is one of the pioneers of the Mission School. Influenced by a mixture of low-brow, folk, graffiti, murals, skateboarding and comic art, Mission School artists rose to prominence in the late 1990s—early 2000s. Several members of the movement were featured in the 2008 documentary film Beautiful Losers.; <b>Artist Biography</b> Clare Rojas (b. 1976, US) earned her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Recent projects include Egret at Kavi Gupta (2018), a site-specific commission for the Art in Embassies Program in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico (2018), a two-person exhibition with Barry McGee at the Watari Museum, Tokyo, Japan (2017), and a solo exhibition at the Alice Gallery in Brussels, Belgium (2016). Other recent solo exhibitions include New Works at Anglim Gilbert San Francisco; self-titled shows at Vladmir Restoin Roitfeld, New York and Galleri Nicolai Wallner, Copenhagen; Pith at Prism, Los Angeles; and We They at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, San Francisco.
