Meet AJ K. our 2023 Artist Series Collection artist.
AJ is an artist at Access Gallery out of Denver, Colo., and we're so excited to feature him and his amazing designs this year.
AJ is a fixture at Access Gallery and one of their most prolific and mobile artists. AJ can often be found exploring Denver using public transportation, regularly riding the train or bus for 20 or more miles each day. These trips prompt the scenes and characters he draws which blend the things he sees, and a few things he doesn't, like his signature character "traffic light head dude."
AJ has been with Access Gallery–an inclusive nonprofit organization that engages the community by opening doors to creative, educational and economic opportunities for people with disabilities to access, experience and benefit from the arts–since 2006 after learning about the gallery on a school field trip. Seeing so many artists make their living doing something they loved made him want to be a part of Access. And, the reason he's stayed for so long. "It is kind of like my hobby and my life," AJ said of his art.
We're so excited to partner with AJ and Access Gallery to bring you this year's 2023 Artist Collection which features a globe glass, long sleeve tee, hat and can Colster.
