The A. Banks team is so excited to be able to share a live demo from Aaron Hazel with all of you! Aaron is a truly inspired young painter with something big to say, and we are so honored he has given us the opportunity to help him spread his message.
Trained by Robert Moore and earning his BFA from Whitman College, Aaron's masterfully honed skills resonate with style and depth. This highly individual artist got his start in sports art, working out of Seattle and gaining enough recognition to have his work featured on the walls of corporate headquarters, like Facebook, Nike, and Starbucks. Throughout his career he has even been commissioned by professional athletes for portraits and had his art displayed in Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture. In his more recent work, Aaron has dedicated his undeniable talents to sharing the stories of minorities of the West, including Native American leaders and African American cowboys. He believes it so important to make known histories that are often lost to traditional academia, and thus has made it the main focus of his creative career. For those of you unfamiliar with this unique work, be sure to scroll through our collection, or visit his websitedirectly. You can also follow him on Instagram to see what Aaron is working on from day to day, @ahaze2.
