Jason Rowland is a self-taught stencil artist living in Winona Lake, IN. He first experimented with stenciled skateboard decks and now paints on whatever he can find — wood, metal, and canvas. His subjects vary from popular pop icons to 1960’s political figures to anonymous people that he finds interesting and compelling.

For the ‘Press Plate Show’, he painted on metal press plates that he salvaged from the Warsaw Times-Union. The ink-smeared backgrounds are covered with random news stories which create an intriguing subtext to his iconic images.

Jason has just started to exhibit his work and has shown in Winona Lake, Fort Wayne and Indianapolis at the contemporary art and music event Oranje and the Murphy Art Center. His work will be featured in Kikked! Magazine in November 2010.

    Jason,

    I may be interested in getting some art from you to help decorate my new office. I like what I’ve seen from Ben and the facebook offerings. Can you do small custom “icon” items. I’m thinking maybe Emmylou Harris and/or Tammy Wynette.

    Let me know!
