Jeff Soto is a painter, illustrator and muralist who has exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. As a teen, he simultaneously discovered both traditional painting and illegal graffiti – and ever since, both worlds have informed his work.
His distinct color palette, subject matter and technique resonate with a growing audience and bridge the gap between surrealism and street art. Inspired by youthful nostalgia, nature, and popular culture, his work is bold, unique and stimulating.
His work has been recognized by American Illustration, Communication Arts, and Juxtapoz. His imaginitive approach in creating environments and characters has been used on projects for Converse, Volkswagen, Jarritos, Disney, Ford and many others.
Jeff is a 2002 graduate of Art Center College of Design. He lives and works in California with his wife and two daughters.
