Most artists just rock one basic style, but former world karate champion Larry Scott gave the Baltimore art scene a solid kick in the pants earlier this summer with The Evolution of Depression, a massive show at Sub-Basement Artist Studios that showcased his incredibly chameleonic range with drawings, paintings, and mixed-media collage. And he’s probably the only artist in town who could command the gallery’s massive floor plan with a one-man show. Socially relevant on local and national levels, Scott’s often introspective, always arresting work deals with issues of race, intolerance, mental illness, and memory. Equally at ease with color and simple, spare India ink, he’s insanely prolific, driven, and endlessly innovative, while retaining a Zen-like demeanor. This New Jersey-raised megatalent might not be Baltimore-born, but we’re more than happy to claim him.
