June and July Featured ArtistOur featured artist this month is Jupiter Moon.
Jupiter grew up on a farm in Iowa, allowing for an early experience of being close to nature and fostering an isolated and very unique creative growth. He attended Nothwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri, attaining a BFA in fine art. Since then, Jupiter has lived on the West Coast from LA to Seattle. He has had numerous local exhibitons throughout the years and has created and sold hundreds of paintings. From 1997-2008 he ran a retreat center in the Santa Cruz Mountains in which he sold many works in his personal studio. His work is in collections around the nation.
The primary theme of Jupiter’s art is expressing the fundamental unity of all in a fun, colorful way. Infused with philosophical ideas, the primary aspect of his paintings is a bold, full-spectrum use of color to create a unified-field composition. In addition to being a highly original prolific visual artist, Jupiter is also an accomplished musician and songwriter, with hundreds of songs to his credit.
