California has served as an inspiration to all sorts of visual artists for many, many years.
Ansel Adams took beautiful photos of Yosemite; David Hockney painted swimming pools; Robert Williams depicted the seedy side of Hollywood.
And then, there's Josh Agle, better known as "Shag."
For years, Shag has created vividly colored artwork featuring classic Southern California landmarks: Disneyland, Palm Springs, Hollywood's Cinerama Dome.
Some of it appears on massive prints, but you can also find his imagery on things like cocktail glasses, coasters and throw pillows. Starting this weekend, they'll all be on display — and for sale — in a new Shag Store in West Hollywood.
Ahead of the store opening, Shag sat down with Take Two's Alex Cohen to talk about how California and consumerism inspire his work.
