User Bio

Scott Kolbo was born Washington, grew up in Boise Idaho, and later moved to Seattle. He became obsessed with art after spending countless hours sketching on the back of the church bulletin as a kid and drawing continues to play a dominant role in all his work. After living and going to college in the Seattle/Portland area he moved back to Boise to study Art. He became interested in the tradition of satire by looking through art books in the library and realizing that he was most attracted to prints with funny looking people in them. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Printmaking from Boise State University in 1996 and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2000. He currently resides in Washington State and works in static two-demensional art media as well as video and installation. His interests revolve around the study of culture, aesthetics, literature, film, and the tension between religious faith and contemporary art. In his studio art work he is interested in the incorporation of new technologies into traditional art making strategies and mixing together elements from high and low culture. Scott exhibits his work locally, nationally, and in web-based formats.
