Jared McGriff is a Los Angeles born Miami-based artist.

My abstract, figurative and portrait watercolor and acrylic paintings are inspired by visual distortions, memory fragments and ephemera. Capturing the expressions, cultural cues and transitory familiarity of my surroundings, this work depicts the lives of imagined subjects that reflect a global family dispersed. My approach to this collective conscious is informed by a deep connection to history and global perspective.
