JASON HOLLEY
Sierra Madre, CA

Artist Bio:
Jason Holley is an artist, illustrator, teacher, and musician living in Los Angeles. He teaches illustration at Art Center College of Design in Pasedena, CA. His artworks are often made up of images painted on paper, cut out and collaged together. When a client returns an illustration to him he often peels his favorite images back off of it to re-use in personal work or other illustrations. For this reason, most of his illustrations survive only in reproduction. This history also contributes to the aged and dirty quality of his work. Holly’s work is simultaneosly raw and incredibly sophisticated and delicate.
