My name is Jerome (aka Kulorbandit) or, Mr. Bandit for short. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area during the 70's and 80's. I've always been influenced by the people, sites, sounds, architecture and rich history of the city-- more specifically, all the art on the walls that were considered a 'crime' or 'illegal'. After graduating high school, my love and passion for art brought me to Arizona. Here, I would pursue a career in the visual arts as an illustrator/graphic designer. In 2008, I decided to become a full-time, stay-at-home-father which has allowed me to focus on commissioned, custom design work for private customers and small businesses. My abstract, geometric style is heavily influenced from my childhood. Although i'm versed in multiple mediums, currently my focus has been ink and water-colored portraits of people and pets. My work has been showcased at events such as RAW, The Chocolate and Art Show, and Conception Arts where I received the Award For Excellence 2017 in the Phoenix Area.
