Jeff Soto is a painter, illustrator and muralist who has exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. When he was 13, he simultaneously discovered both traditional painting and illegal graffiti – and, ever since, both worlds have informed his work. The artist’s distinct color palette, subject matter and technique resonate with a growing audience and bridge the gap between pop surrealism and graffiti. Inspired by youthful nostalgia, nature, graffiti, and popular culture, his bold, representational work is simultaneously accessible and stimulating.
In addition to exhibiting his work, Soto is in the midst of several side projects: Stormcloudz is an apparel line based on his drawings; The Seeker Friends are fluffy, furry characters shown on prints and made into toys; and Potato Stamp is a production company for Soto’s stories and cartoon creations.
