Chet Zar is the Painter of Dark. He paints monsters and ghouls and all things creepy… and we love it. We’ve been big fans of his work for several years now and are proud to present this insightful look into his background as an artist. He is just that; a very real artist who constantly works and shares his work. He has one of the most prolific bodies of work we have ever seen. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting him, attending some of his gallery showings around California, and to have collected a couple prints of his work. He has become a well known name in the dark art world and in tattoo culture; inspiring all of us along the way.
The Welch Brothers, Jeremiah Allen Welch and Gabriel Welch, are an artist duo living and working in San Francisco. The Welch Brothers were born in Visalia, CA into an artistic family. Their father was a muralist and sign painter and their mother and oldest sister started a clowning business. As children, sketchbooks, legos and costumes from their family’s clowning business supplied an endless amount of entertainment. 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.
