Artist Statement: Jerome Fleming depicts portraits of people through a line etched lens. Growing up in San Francisco, he was always influenced by people, sites, sounds, architecture, and the rich history of the Bay Area. He was especially inspired by the graffiti art on the walls that were considered a ‘crime’ or ‘illegal’. He captures subjects in a geometric style through traditional or digital media. Whether historical, pop culture, or social justice; no theme is off-limits.
