Jarad McHugh is an artist and high school teacher living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His creative influences generally come from mythology, religious texts, and science fiction novels. For Jarad, drawing is a mode of exploring the divine mystic. Forging deep connections with chosen ritual and mythology through the act of drawing, his work conveys both classical forms of figures as well as futuristic android femmes emblazoned with sacred geometry. Introspection through the lens of graphite, ink, and paper allows the artist to merge influences from ancient mythology and science fiction into a unique kaleidoscopic style filled with potent personal themes that viewers can easily find in themselves.
"I believe in absolutely everyone's ability to learn, grow, and become more honest and creative cersions of ourselves."
