Meet: clamdiggin

Los Angeles, California
10.04.2010 | by: Meghan

I first met clamdiggin, an LA-based biodiversity-obsessed artist collab made up of Alexandra Fisher and Kevin Johnson, six years ago when they were still living in Chicago, creating oversized chalk drawings for some of the coolest restaurants in town, billboard campaigns and hand-printed nature tees. Since then, they moved across the country to Tucson, where they lived in a teepee in the desert, had a kid, and landed an exhibit at MOCA. Now, based in LA, Kevin and Alexandra are building on their mission “to use our aesthetic to promote biodiversity” with an ever-evolving roster of exhibits, documentary collaborations, books, and even selling  conservancy tees from the back of their VW bus. The way Alexandra describes it: “Commerce, support of local artists, production in the US, fashion, education, sex appeal and nature all in a woven basket.”

Fueled by academic-strength research (into everything from the patterns of migrating birds to charting the evolution of a freshwater pond), clamdiggin’s work was recently discovered by the reigning high priestess of hotel design, Kelly Wearstler, who tapped them to help deck out the beautiful, new Viceroy Anguilla. They collaborated on a series of art pieces inspired by Anguilla’s natural resources: leatherback sea tortoises, salt crystals and black mangroves. And the in-hotel shop will sell clamdiggin nature prints, hand-cut and -dyed tees, and Mexican totes.
