Jeremiah Allen Welch
Jeremiah Allen Welch is an artist living and working in San Francisco. He was born in Visalia, CA into an artistic family. His father was a muralist and sign painter and his mother and oldest sister started a clowning business. As a child, sketchbooks, legos and costumes from the family's clowning business supplied an endless amount of entertainment. His father sold comic books and toys at the local flea market and this would serve as an inspiring force for the years to come. The colorful world of comic books can be seen throughout much of the Jeremiah's work.
When their family moved to the small town of Winslow, Arizona in 1996 he became best friends and partners in crime with his brother, Gabriel Welch. This is where they began to pass sketchbooks back and forth and build ideas together.
The Welch Brothers moved back to California in 2002. Graffiti, street art, and hip hop became their main forms of expression until they became immersed in ceramics and fine art. Comics, graffiti and fine art eventually began to melt together into the style you see today.
Although the two brothers took time to cultivate their own unique styles, they would often work together throughout the course of their lives. Their individual styles combine seamlessly to create works unlike anything else that has been seen in the past. From impressionistic animals to abstract worlds that look as though they could be created with computers, The Welch Brothers continue to push the boundaries of traditional art. They have struck out on a grand adventure together with no path to follow, paving a walkway into the unknown.
