Long before the written language existed, humans over the millennia used pictures and symbols to depict their worlds. In prehistoric times cave paintings illustrated the struggle for existence, and both Greek and Roman mythologies relied heavily on symbols to represent their beliefs.
Building upon the influence of street and Pop Art, Howard continues to incorporate what he has learned from ancient and contemporary cultures into a visual celebration: an eye-opening explanation of our religions, warmongering, politics, ethnicity, nature, sex, and life and death.
Howard spent 30 years as a commercial artist creating logos, the modern and mainstream equivalent of ancient symbolism, which today dot the corporate American landscape. His success in the field came from his ability to simplify subject matter to its bare essence. Upon Covid-19, he and his wife dissolved their graphic design company to pursue Fine Art careers in a full-time capacity. Public Collections include Gibson Guitar Town at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. He is currently working on “Put a Bird On It”, the venue will be announced in late 2022.
