About the Artist
Aaron Jasinski’s paintings have shown across the US, and internationally. He also illustrates children’s books, album covers, and creates electronic music. Aaron grew up in a family of musicians and the love of music is a major influence in his visual art. His paintings feature nostalgic themes peppered with social commentary and whimsical creatures (think morose hipsters mingling with monkeys in space suits), utilizing a Technicolor palette. Aaron resides near Seattle Washington with his wife and children.
