Watson is an artist based in Maryland whose work focuses on exploring the urban landscape.
Nearly all of Watson’s life he have lived surrounded by nature and pastoral beauty. For many this would be artistically inspiring, but it has never aroused his creativity. He found his creative sparked outside of his rural world.
Watson’s work is fueled by the excitement of the “big city” and the often overlooked beauty of the landscape. Infrastructure as well as decay in urban environments are what intrigue him the most. Informational signs, advertising, graffiti, layered paint, and neglect weave a rich tapestry of imagery that is an endless supply of inspiration. His work has been featured in galleries throughout the mid-Atlantic region, and in various online galleries.
Watson’s unique style has caught the attention of many patrons, jurors, and publications alike. He is an active advocate for the arts, artist mentor, and lecturer. Watson belongs to several artist groups, and was a key organizer of Artomatic@Frederick in 2016. He is a graduate of the arts program at Towson University.
