Jason Brammer is a visual artist, painter, and muralist based in Logan Square. He is known for his paintings created with a distinctive combination of airbrushing and traditional paintbrush techniques as well as mixed media works that showcase a unique melding of paint and objects. Jason seamlessly incorporates 3-dimensional elements into his paintings, such as real antique parts and salvaged items he happens upon in the alleys by his studio. The attachments flow in and out of his pieces, creating an illusion that draws the viewer in for a closer look to see what is real and what is painted.
In addition to paintings, Jason does a lot of commissioned work, including murals, installations, album artwork, and more. Recent commissioned pieces include a large-scale public mural for the city of Chicago in Rogers Park, an installation for social networking company LinkedIn, and concert posters for the bands "My Morning Jacket" and "Robert Plant & The Band Of Joy".
Jason's work has been featured in numerous local and national art exhibitions and is in private collections from New York City and Toronto to Seattle and Los Angeles.
