About the Artist

Born and raised in Colorado, Tucker Eason moved to California to receive his BFA from Occidental College. During his undergrad Eason used mainly graphite and charcoal working with mural sized pieces and only after graduation did he begin to experiment with color. From his studio in East Oakland Tucker explores themes of color, scale, corporeality and expression through his varied portraiture work. Since living in the Bay area he has various shows including a piece at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco.
