Nude But Not Rude
Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Jeff Outlaw is an American artist well versed in several media. His work strives for storytelling with a social conscious. The images he creates are not afraid to display raw, strong emotion in order to challenge the viewer to think about the world which we all currently share. “Only by seeing the issues can we confront them.”
Originally raised in America’s northeast, he has traveled to many parts of the country and the world over the years. After graduating from Pennsylvania State University, he enlisted in the American Navy, where he traveled for 5 years. After the service he entered formal art training at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. With his degree from that school, he has spent years as an artist and manager for several video game studios, traveling from Florida to Australia and finally to Pittsburgh, where he currently makes his home.
As of February of 2011, he has completed five full shows as well as many miscellaneous works. This Naked Artist exposed the artist to his patrons in two ways, as both the artist and the subject of that show. He has been questioned at times about exposing himself in such a raw way. Jeff has always felt that displaying his art in any way exposes himself, so being the subject of these works is only extra spice.
Jeff is the founder of Outlaw Artisans LLC, which sponsors a number of gallery shows each year in Pittsburgh, PA. He has also been a member of the Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators since 2010, and a member of the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society since 2011, currently serving as the submissions chair. He currently lives in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. When not painting, he enjoys the company of his family, spending time working around the house, baking breads, gardening, and building stuff. His work has been displayed in galleries from Pittsburgh to Queensland, Australia. Most recently his painting Shy from the Brash! series was featured in the 2011 Aqueous Watercolor show in Pittsburgh, and Pissed was featured in the Naked in Pittsburgh: Autumn 2011 show at Red Door Space.
