Jeff Nabors is a life-long native of Cincinnati. His professional career has included roles as an artist, designer, art director and creative director for a number of Cincinnati design and advertising firms. Jeff earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1983 from Ohio University, with a major area of study in graphic design. Throughout his academic and professional career Jeff has explored his art through a variety of media; printmaking, ceramics, drawing, digital, photography and painting, with painting being his first choice of personal expression.
Jeff’s work has evolved from his passion for good design, his love of color and texture, and his belief that successful artwork must ultimately connect with the viewer on an emotional level. Jeff believes in art that is tangible, tactile, bold, and kinetic. His contemporary expressionist style, which includes landscapes and narratives, is informed by historical turn-of-the-century art movements such as post impressionism, pointillism, and fauvism. His paintings can be considered reliefs, with generous amounts of paint applied to the canvas in short expressive strokes creating a sculpted-like feel highly activated by directional light casting shadows that add depth and richness to the image.
Jeff is currently concentrating on maturing his style and adding to his body of work. He is seeking commissions and gallery representation. …Read More
