Aaron Rose is an American film director, artist, exhibition curator and writer. Rose is known as the co-director of Beautiful Losers, a film that focuses on an art movement which includes artists such as Barry McGee, Margaret Kilgallen, Steven “Espo” Powers, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine and Shepard Fairey.
Rose grew up in the San Fernando Valley near Los Angeles and started attending punk and mod shows in the mid 1980s. The artwork of this scene inspired him to seek a career that facilitated creativity and artistic creation. From high school, he was accepted to Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design, but dropped out after only one semester. Rose stated later “For me, art school seemed like a death sentence.”
