Wood burning and cigar bands: the art of Jason Houchen

Missouri born, Jason Houchen creates fantastically intricate wood-burnings. I especially love the use of the cigar bands in his work. After graduating in Sculpture, he relocated to LA where he discovered highly influential classical folk art, street, and a burgeoning pop surrealism art scene.

Through his wood burnings, sculptures, mixed media and paintings, he has developed a style that coalesces his Midwest influences with these newly found worlds. Described as being ‘full of life and death, spirits and spirituality, history, as well as memories, his work provokes more questions than answers.’

About the author

A love of traveling, art, and denim saw this Brit native mix them all up. The result was art crafted from denim and a new home in Sweden. Even though he once lived in Australia and never rode a wave, Denimu is only slightly better with a keyboard and likes to write about the things he has seen on his travels and the people he meets along the way.
