About Nat Reed

Nat Reed is an internationally recognized artist for his unique interpretations of the “Familiar Modern.” His artwork quickly became a favorite for collectors and fans of mid-mod inspired art and design.

Reed grew up in Huntington Beach in the 1960s and 70s, absorbing the chaotically changing cultural and physical landscape of Southern California. His grandfather, Eli Hedley, was a self styled tiki carver.  He was also an interior designer of Polynesian Pop icons. He was known for decorating such famous nightspots as the AkuAku, KonTiki and Stephen Crane’s Luau. His father was a set designer for RKO studios.

Reed opened Madrona Gallery in 1989. Later, taking a studio in the Brewery Arts Complex, Reed developed assemblages that laid the foundation for his current style. His progression towards the visual vernacular of the American post war landscape was accelerated by taking on the obsessive restoration of a 1959 midcentury modern home in Palm Springs. It was an immersion that permanently altered his aesthetic. It caused him to both realign his formal approach to artwork as well as mining his subconscious for interpretations.
