Biography / Jeff Soto

A painter, illustrator and muralist, Jeff Soto lives in and works from California. Combining both graffiti and traditional painting his work bridges the gap between pop surrealism and street art. Soto has worked on multiple UN projects and most recently taking a part of UN’s and WALL\THERAPY’S international exchange program.

An educated artist and illustrator, Soto’s work on canvas and walls, inspired by ’80 fantasy movies and science fiction, often involves portraying surreal and almost magical animals and beasts. Using a distinct colour palette and technique, his artwork clearly embraces his graffiti background.

Growing up in a multimember family and with his parents taking him on camping and fishing trips he developed awareness for his environment and nature, which, through his work, he now tries to instil in communities around the world.
