My Shadows | Jeff King

Jeff King, a lifelong Nebraska resident, was born in 1974. He began drawing as a child and his interest developed through both education and observation into a love of personal expression through his paintings. Jeff’s work reflects his interest in urban culture and comments on his interpretation of society. He credits his influences to both mainstream and underground artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat, Cy Twombly, and Phase 2. He resides in Omaha with his wife, Jennie, and their son, Levi.
