Growing up in the Millcreek area, Ethan started painting with spray paint early in high school. He has honed his skill as a spray paint artist ever since. Pursuing the arts in higher education, Ethan got a degree in art ed at Southern Utah University. He currently works as a freelance artist and educator. He composes anything from large scale murals to fine art. Ethan’s paintings are created by multi layer hand-cut stencils. First he creates an image on a computer program. Then he prints that image onto large sheets of paper and cut the images out with an x-acto knife. Most of his paintings are 9 layers of stencils. Once everything is cut out, he spray paints each layer on top of each other creating these images. As an artist Ethan likes to combine opposing ideas, one theme that he revisits often is the duality of nature and industry. Some of his art is meant to be thought provoking while some is just meant to catch the eye with little to no meaning behind it. Lately his art has been influenced by a dark surrealism theme which he has been experimenting with. To see his entire portfolio follow me on instagram at @kid.nothing.
