California-based artist Jeff Soto is a painter, illustrator and muralist who has exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. As a high school student, Soto began to experiment with various genres and art techniques including painting, photography, ceramics, and filmography. He discovered both traditional painting and illegal graffiti – and, ever since, both worlds have informed his work. Jeff’s distinct color palette, subject matter and technique resonate with a growing audience and bridge the gap between pop surrealism and street art. Teeming with odd characters and furry creatures, Soto’s allegorical paintings can be both apocalyptic and playful.
