Jacob Livengood is a painter and illustrator based in San Diego, USA. Heavily influenced by Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Gary Baseman, graphic novels and toy art – references present on his works -, he creates paintings and drawings that seem sweet and cheerful on the surface, but reveal bitter themes and situations underneath.
Using vivid colors, he fills his canvases with innumerous paint dots, developing his own aesthetics with this technique. Check it out:
