This month's design comes from a long time creative friend of mine,
This is Aaron's 3rd design for the Sticker Club! He did one in 2015 that
was THEE most popular design of our first year. Aaron is actually FROM
Costa Mesa, CA...but now he lives in Tennessee with his beautiful wife
Erin. Aaron is someone that was part of the Instagon scene
back in the 1990's .. and actually played with Instagon a few times
during 1996, and so my first interaction with him was mainly as an electronics
sound artist, of which he is also very talented...but then I discovered
his visual art, and I was blown away!! He is an amazing artist that uses
non traditional elements and methods to come up with some really amazing
and striking visual work. His art is very POP and has strong pop culture
presence, but also an obvious influence from the graffiti art culture.
He works mostly in mixed media on wood or canvas, without brushes, using
unconventional methods. He says he enjoys incorporating his surroundings
into his finished pieces and the results are always exciting. Aaron has
a HUGE collection of work, and currently works as a full time artist,
so new pieces are being created continually He also has designed record
covers for bands, cups for coffee houses, skateboards, guitars, and has
shown art at Orange County Museum of Art, Laguna Beach Art Museum,
MOCA, Box Gallery, and other galleries in Southern California and beyond.
He has a website with art and drawings for sale, and a gallery of past
works too at: www.aaronkratenart.com.
