Possibly Latrodectus geometricus Brown Widow.
That’s what I think too. They have a great post-modernistic art look to them. Another positive thing about them is that they are deadly to Black Widows.
The spots running down the back of a Brown Widow (L. geometricus) are more distinct, on L. hesperus they run together and form a stripe.
This is a Western Black Widow (Latrodectus hesperus).
