Frederic Booker, Painter

Frederic Booker, an architect by trade and owner/restorer of our Featured Residence, has become an accomplished full time painter. Using an investigators approach, each painting is well researched and meticulously constructed and he’ll often spend months on a single painting. Collected by luminaries such as Nelson Mandela, Michael Wayne (John Wayne’s son),  Ruby and Ossie Davis and Flo Joe, he has also won best of show at the large art festivals in Boulder City, Thousand Oaks and Hanover, New Jersey and shown at the Ronald Regan Library. He has work currently on display in the Los Angeles Mayors office.
Booker refuses to be pigeonholed into telling one kind of story and his paintings are imbued with multiple meanings that include politics, social rights and art. His images include a baseball series that evoke a bucolic 1950’s, a little African-American girl named Phillis Wheatley who met George Washington, women at a beauty salon and a 19th century African-American woman suckling a blonde baby in front of her own children.      View his work here Contact at 323-733-3021
