Jose Aurelio Baez is a painter from New York and a graduate from Carnegie Mellon University (’08). His works are made up of layers of repurposed print, combined with bold and bright colors, informed by places he’s been – lifting their textures, language and subtle imagery.
He experiments with different textures on canvas, wood, stone and metal, developing his unique processes as he works.
In 2015 he was featured on NY1 for his work with the Sing for Hope Piano Project, while his other art pieces were exhibited in places such as 212, Plush and Warehouse Galley.
He was also a set artist for VH1’s Black Ink Crew, did mural installations with JMZ Walls, and had commissioned work for Samsung, Droga5 & New Castle Lager.
