A full time artist known for combining photo realism with elements of graffiti and street art culture. He received his BA in art in 1999 from Bradford College in Bradford, MA. Since 2000, Jeff has been further developing and mastering his painting techniques, while delving into a wide range of mediums including ceramics, silk screening, tattooing, aerosol, & oils.
Jeff got his start in the gallery scene with huge monochrome portraits of the homeless and displaced. The emotion and pain captured in the faces of his subjects created strikingly dramatic and profound works that hold one's attention even from a distance. Successful showings in D.C. at The Museum of Contemporary Art and La Casa de la Cultura in Boston led to shows in Atlanta, GA, Saint Petersburg & Miami, FL and New York City. To date, Jeff has collectors from Canada, France and Russia.
His latest series depicts realistic paintings of the pedestrian New York landscape in a way that lets the viewer step into the landscape and wander around as if by one's self in the echo of the rare and fleeting quiet seconds in the city. In this body of work there are no people in the scenes. Only pigeons bringing stickers to surfaces used by street artists in their own anonymous pursuit of getting up in the streets. Stickers, tags, drips, throw ups, and wheat pastes in all their crinkled, torn and weathered glory are some of Jeff's favorite elements to add to his work.
