Jarod Kane was born and raised in San Diego, California. He came from a family of artists; his uncle, a sculptor, and his older sister, a painter, encouraged him from a young age. He had a love for cartoons and comic books early on and found himself trying to draw the characters he enjoyed. The graphic style of comics can still be seen in his work today whether in his painting, printmaking, drawings, or stencils. He has created works about a variety of concepts sometimes concentrating on the mundane while other times trying to capture the awesome beauty of nature. He is motivated to explore and discover new landscapes of the artistic world.
