Liquid PXL / Abram Santa Cruz
Liquid PXL is a Los Angeles based group of artists, engineers and friends dedicated to creating fun and large scale interactive art installations. We began with our first big art project at Burning Man in 2012 followed by our first music festival exhibit at Lucidity in 2013. Since then, we’ve completed 5 art installations with The Sea Urchin awarded the 2016 Global Arts Grant from Burning Man and the 2019 Aquarium of the Pacific Grant. Most recently, Kukulkan’s Portal was awarded the 2020 Burning Man Honoraria Grant. Several of our led light installations have exhibited in international light festivals.
Abram’s work draws from his many years as a graphic designer, photographer and painter. By combining photography with painting and lighting, Abram has created works that are bold, bright, yet intense. While staying focused on his strengths, Abram is always searching for ways to enhance and exceed his own high creative standards. He is taking a new direction in his large scale burning man artwork by combining his multiple disciplines and skills with sustainability. Abram is currently enrolled in school in Los Angeles and working toward a degree in Environmental Science. His aim is to create works of art that produce sustainable energy while also providing a social benefit of beautifying a public space and educating people about sustainability.
