Working with Graham Kolbeins of Future Shipwreck, New American Paintings recently produced a video that captures Los Angeles-based artist, Annie Lapin, at work in her studio.

Annie Lapin is part of a new generation of Los Angeles-based painters who are now garnering international attention. In 2010, she was awarded the inaugural New American Paintings Annual Prize, which is given to one artist annually, chosen from among thousands, to acknowledge their outstanding contributions to contemporary painting. Lapin will have a solo exhibition at LA's Honor Fraser gallery opening in late May.
