Oliver Vernon was born in New York and currently works out of Brooklyn. He graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York with a BFA. Vernon works with acrylic, ink, gouache, and watercolor, often on canvas, to create images that are chaotic and beautiful with many organic curves and fine detail. In some of his works, Vernon begins with splattering ink and designs the rest of the piece around the splatters. His abstract pieces are displayed in galleries across the country.
