Huffington Post | Jesse Hazelip’s “Mark of Cain” at Known Gallery Highlights Prison Injustice

With his first solo Los Angeles show, “Mark of Cain,” artist Jesse Hazelip confronts injustice with a powerful weapon, his art. Hazelip addresses issues surrounding the United States’ increasingly privatized prison system with beautiful, profound, deeply symbolic art that combines delicate pencil and pen drawings with elements of graffiti and tattooing. Born in Cortez, Colorado where he lived amidst the Ute and Navajo Nation, Jesse moved to Santa Barbara when he was 13 and got involved in the graffiti scene, developing his art skills, then graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA with a BFA. Transitioning into galleries, he continues to use wheat paste and paint public space, running his own “ad campaigns” with graffiti and posters to reach as many free minds as possible.
