LeFavewebJeffrey LaFave is a Newaygo artist, whose art educational background stems from a 2 year Commercial Lefave Show DWArt degree, to a degree in Fine Art (painting), at Kendall College of Art and Design. Jeff’s Artist Statement:

Character like images formulates a major role in my content. These forms appear and disappear which gives the mind a visual playground. All of my work is based on an automatic process. It involves color, line, and encouraged by a surrealist attempt to show what’s imagined. Line plays an important role throughout my work. It formulates an atmosphere of color, which is the organic growth of my composition. A limited color palette of one color is dedicated to each piece. This way each one will have a dominating hue.

LaFave Show DW2My style is derived from many influences including, Mayan and

Egyptian Glyphs, comic Books, Persian and Oriental Rugs, Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism, Alchemy, Mysticism, Mythology, Pop, Tribal and Graffiti Art.
