Jeff Schaller New Work at Hubert Gallery

My buddy, Jeff Schaller, has some new work at Hubert Gallery that you should all go check out! Jeff paints with encaustic and his work is beautiful. His brush strokes are gentle yet decisive. His colors are rich and textural and his compositions add strength to the pop quality of the work. He employs the use of wordplay in his work which has a tongue in cheek quality and adds a whimsical sense to his pieces.

I have had the pleasure of visiting his studio and he has it set up to do everything creative dealing with painting, encaustic and screenprinting. His studio is covered in mid-century icons that all play a role in his work. Vintage Coca Cola tin signs, vintage pin up posters and his trademark pink cow all adorn his space!

You can see Jeff's work here and here.
