Del Maguey artist Ken Price dead at 77

Ken Price

Ken Price, a key figure in the post-war LA art scene currently celebrated in the PST shows across Southern California died Friday.  His gallery work is amazing but his most seen work is also somewhat anonymous because he did the iconic illustrations for Ron Cooper’s Del Maguey mezcal line.  Read some nice appreciations of his life in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times obituaries.

Update: The Wall Street Journal also has a great obituary that just ran.

Max co-founded Mezcalistas with Susan way back in 2012. Before that he was a journalist at Salon.com and The San Francisco Chronicle.
