mfa student profile: B.J.Becker


B.J. has a broad background in illustration, teaching and various creative efforts. His work has a strong graphic quality, and is as easily tied to the Secessionists of 1910 with the paintings of Edward Hopper. He crafts his illustrations with graphic strength but allows the paint and color to keep the ordered structures of the line organic. B.J.'s work is not hemmed in by the visual world, but also flows into writing fiction. He's a great one in the critique, with an angle or observation that is as interesting to contemplate, as to hear it's eloquent delivery. I don't believe he has his work accessible to the general public, but you can ask nicely here: bjbecker.net
