Having lived near the Florida Everglades for the past 12 years, Skot Olsen has developed an affinity for the Deep South. When not painting giant squid and sea captains, cypress trees and fresh water springs populated with hillbillies are the topics he most enjoys to depict.
Skot’s art training is evident in his paintings, which are cartoonish in style, with somewhat realistic rendering. His work primarily deals with the human condition via a story that unravels within the picture before the viewer.
His work is collected by a diverse international population, spanning from tattoo artists and hipsters to business people and retirees, and he has had the pleasure of exhibiting with and appearing in the same collections as some of the most notable figures in modern art. His work has been featured in numerous national and international publications and is currently on exhibit at Gallery Bink in Portland Oregon and l'art Noir inNew Orleans.
