Artist David Korty

I got to know John Korty when I was doing research for the book Cinema by the Bay, published by George Lucas Books, an imprint of JAK Films.  John's Northern California studio was the inspiration for Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas to set up shop in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Other famous filmmakers have also been influenced by John including David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club) and Henry Selick (Coraline, James and the Giant Peach), among others. 

Talent runs deep in the Korty family, including John's son David who I just discovered.  His work is available from the London gallery Sadie Coles and at the Michael Kohn gallery in Los Angeles.  A good reason to visit both places!
