You might call Dennis Hopper one of the original “influencers” of his time. The multi-talented artist’s work-which ranged from acting, directing, photography, and sculpture-made him a mid-century icon, and Hopper’s natural ability to capture landscapes, people, and everyday objects epitomized ‘California Cool.’ (Born in Kansas, he spent much of his youth in San Diego and LA.) This fall, his pieces will appear in four separate-yet-simultaneous exhibitions in Los Angeles, London, and Rome-proving that even after his passing, Hopper’s legacy continues to live on.
