Jessica Lofhtus

Artist - Curator - Consultant

I’m the child of a seamstress and a carpenter, and grew up visually immersed between Southwest and Graffiti art. I spent much of my youth around Southwest painters and galleries, and spent my teen years sneaking off to watch graffiti artists create enormous crisp and vibrant compositions. My painting style reflects these two very different but complimentary styles, while layering spiritual and cultural references with subtle color changes and crisp lines. My work explores cultural evolution, and hidden windows and intersections in the universe where different worlds collide. I hold a BFA in painting with a focus in Ancient Middle Eastern Art from The University of Texas.
