Based out of Portland, Oregon, Jason Graham works full time as a tattoo artist at Grizzly Tattoo. However, inbetween zapping people and enjoying delights the city has to offer, he hides away to paint and draw stunning compositions with eccentric juxtapositions (usually with Frasier on loop). Using solely India ink on watercolor paper, his pieces evoke a flash tattoo style utilizing bold black lines and integrating geometric patterns.

Mpane’s rough-hewn portraits explore the fundamental connection between place and personal identity. Using plywood glued in layers and finished with an adze – an edging tool that dates to the Stone Age – he produces topographies of the human face reminiscent of relief depictions on a map. This layering reveals contour lines over forms that allude both formally and stylistically to African masks, but also reference Cubism – rooted in an interest in Primitivism – by incorporating bright colors and bold patterns.

Forget the relentless production of teenage vampire television shows or low budget slasher movies with continuing sequels and remakes. Marci Washington paints the dark arts from a past era, influenced by the ornate beauty and the mysterious worlds of Edward Gorey, L. Frank Baum, and Francisco Goya. Remix these masters of fantasy with Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, and you get the work of this Berkeley-based artist.
