In his brilliant and eye opening series Fast Food, artist Marc Trujillo looks at one of America’s most ubiquitous urban environments, the take-out franchise and its drive up windows. A Los Angeles resident, he resides in the heart of fast food culture, where grabbing a quick burger or taco to go is a universal habit. Both intrigued and a little repelled, Trujillo decided to move in for a closer look. With a keen eye, he brings the allure and meticulous observation of a 17th century Dutch still life and a touch of ambivalent commentary to his paintings of this ordinarily mundane experience.

Marc Trujillo earned his MFA from Yale University, and is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship. His work is held in both private and public collections throughout the United States.
