Pen & Paper: Jeff Soto

Jeff Soto is an artist, illustrator and muralist who has exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. Inspired by a spectrum of influences ranging from graffiti and hip-hop to nature and pop culture, his work bridges the imaginary chasm between pop surrealism and street art. In recent years, Soto has been embraced worldwide by a growing audience enthused with his color palette, subject matter and technique, skills honed by roots in both graffiti and traditional painting. In this latest installment of our Pen & Paper series, we take a firsthand look at the crossover appeal of Soto’s work, art that is at home both on the streets and on gallery walls.
