Jonathan Hayden Gold was born and raised in Aspen, Colorado. Skiing, skateboarding, riding bikes, camping, and making art are among his hobbies. He graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2010 where he studied printmaking, drawing, and cultural anthropology. He lives in Aspen, CO where he works as a ski technician by day and at the only music venue in town by night.
Pulp horror, punk rock, comic books, and the oh so enjoyable beer drinking, have shaped my world into one where all is at question and all can never be answered in full. Because of this, drawing, painting, and printmaking have become a way for me to capture what I witness day to day and year by year. For each vice that people participate in, there are countless personalities to accompany them, which I attempt to recreate through the concreteness of ink and paint.
