Artist Bio

Aaron Bass is a printmaker from Albuquerque, NM. He received his BFA in Printmaking with the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 1999, and his MFA in Printmaking at the University of New Mexico in 2007. Bass’s work is based on urban interpretations of animism that he developed through a combination of “collecting objects that intuitively resonated with me and a passion for reading folklore from a variety of cultures and finding the common imagery” (Art Studio). He has always been fascinated by archetypes and how symbols can resonate across cultures and time. Bass has taught classes that range from printmaking, art history, narrative design, and drawing. His work can be found in 18 different collections across the US.
