Painter & Illustrator - he/him
My name is Jack Boucher, I am a prolific painter and illustrator with a passion for equality through life and art alike. I've been making art for as long as I can remember. At first, I explored art to express my emotions because when I was younger, I had a hard time communicating with others (even if they were close to me) and I made art in my free time to try and understand how I was feeling. Through my art-making, I not only was able to express myself in a way that I could understand, but I began sharing my work with others and involving them in what I do, and how making art affects me. People who enjoyed and represented my art, including teachers, fellow artists, skate-shop owners, brands and employers, shared it and appreciated it, which led me to drive myself as an artist. I am happy to be featured in an artist-owned magazine called “scratchzine” based in the bay area as well as being an artist represented by “mrktgllry” in San Francisco. I am also now part of the Artists For Justice team and help lead artist outreach and creative design.
I currently have an associates degree in Art and plan on furthering my education to get a bachelors and eventually a master degree. Eventually, I'd like to become a master of art, so that I can teach and inspire young minds in the way that my previous inspirations and teachers have done so to me. With my art I hope to challenge and question what the subject and meaning of art can be for my interpretation.
