Graham developed his style of lettering and character drawing growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area surrounded by great local graffiti, in addition to the influence of having his nose buried in comic books as a kid. He honed his fine-art skills through his study at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California, where he earned his Bachelors Degree in Drawing and Printmaking. He now lives in Seattle, WA where he enjoys craft beer and occasional trips to see the Philadelphia Flyers. (All artwork copyrighted by the artist.)

In a twist on the traditional feminist interpretation of the “male gaze,” GALLERY 1/1 presents a new photography exhibition exploring how men see themselves and other men from behind the camera lens. The featured artists address themes of sexual desire, identity, self-reflection, masculinity, and the dynamics of power that are core critiques of the objectifying male gaze. As you know, we specialize in one-of-a-kind alternative and experimental photographic prints adding an exciting and unique challenge to creating this figurative photography show, The Male Gaze.
