Jon "Roach" Brosius

RoachesNeedLoveToo.com

Roach’s artistic style combines elements of screen printing, graphic design, collage and fine art. The creation of his artwork begins with the canvas as the creativity flows through and spills over, holding back intent and reason. Geometric shapes and patterns formed in each of his pieces can create hidden landscapes and characters telling each viewer a different story. The complexity of Jon’s work is consistent whether he is painting with multiple colors or drawing with a simple black pen. He is flexible with the surfaces that he chooses to create on such as canvas, wood panels, walls, mason jar lids and paper; meanwhile adapting to the combination of supplies on hand in the moment.

Jon has shown his artwork at the Riverside Art Museum, UCR Sweeney Art Gallery, Division 9 Gallery and various other independent galleries around the community. Along with showing his artwork, Jon has participated in various art shows as an artist and as an event coordinator for events like Saturation Art & Music Festival which has been held annually for the past 10 years in downtown Riverside. He was a donating artist for the Sea No Evil Art Show, a fundraiser for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Jon also participated in the Summer Arts at Dos Lagos event where he brought “Paint with Friends” art walls for the community to paint on during one of the Movie Nights. In July of 2011 Jon exhibited in a solo show called “Forever Untitled”  at the Riverside Arts Project gallery in the Riverside Plaza. In the exhibit, Jon included a “Paint with Friends” wall which was up for silent auction until the end of the exhibit. The money raised from the sale of the wall was donated to the gallery to help fund future community based art events at the gallery.
