In 2009, Terri Lloyd’s iconic Pink Buddha landed at Ground Zero, i.e., the L.A. art scene, and has been making absurdist mischief ever since. One never knows in what form the imperturbable PB will materialize. It has been sighted in guerrilla theater performances, on YouTube, Facebook, [Instagram too!], in small press art-lit mags, in commie porn chapbooks, posters, paintings and other subterranean venues…
Excerpt from When I Grow Up And Other Mantras, Black Scat Books, 2016.
Terri Lloyd is a self-taught artist living and working in Los Angeles. In the late
1980s she accidentally landed a computer graphics job and spent the next 25 years
in commercial art working as a graphic designer. Volunteerism and community arts
projects remain a prominent part of her activities. In 2010 she founded The Haggus
Society, a non-profit feminist arts group for women over the age of 40.
Lloyd currently devotes much of her time to a fine arts studio practice. Terri has authored two books, When I Grow Up And Other Mantras, and The Little Red Book Of Commie Porn with artist Norman Conquest. Sadly, both books are now out of print.
Terri has been a contributor to Black Scat Books and in 2016 wrote a monthly advice column under the Pink Buddha psuedonym, “Ask PB” for the online magazine Le Scat Noir.
