Skinner is a self-taught artist from Sacramento, California who has meticulously crafted a balance of extraordinary mural work, mighty powerful wall-to-wall installations and a prolific commercial career.
Influenced by 80s pop culture, human struggle, myths and violence, dungeons and dragons, and the heavy metal gods, Skinner’s mind is one full of mayhem fueled by a calculated chaos. His work has been shown all over the universe — at places like the Museum of Graphic Design in Breta, Netherlands, the Illustrative Festival in Berlin, Germany, Japan, France, and the states from LA to New York and everywhere in between.
He recently participated in the epic ‘Suggestivism’ exhibition at the Grand Central Arts Center. His most recent solo exhibit entitled ‘The Fear You May Know’ reigned at White Walls Gallery in San Francisco in the summer of 2010. Skinner’s work has been featured in many publications, including Blisss, Juxtapoz, Hi Fructose, and Beautiful / Decay.
