Jeff Gauntt-Quiceno grew up in Texas and studied painting (BFA) before moving to New York (MFA), where he was represented by Sikkema Jenkins & Co. Jeff currently lives and works in Los Angeles. He makes paintings, objects, and prints in his studio, designs and builds costumes and props for performing (cosplay) at genre conventions, and makes signs and prints for covert interactive fan performances at live events. Jeff has been awarded grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation.
