Aaron Noble (b. 1961, Portland, OR) lives and works in Los Angeles. His work is inspired by comic book imagery, and his paintings, murals, prints and drawings incorporate superhero body parts that are collaged, morphed and distorted and float in undefined landscapes. He is known for his large scale murals, beginning in San Francisco with WPA-style outdoor murals depicting the city’s labor history. He has since painted murals that draw on contemporary popular street culture, Western comic art, Japanese anime and manga, video games, and technology on Museum walls, public spaces, and in alleyways in several cities in California; Beijing, China; London, England; and Yogyakarta, Indonesia. He has exhibited widely, and his work is in the collections of the Hammer Museum, New York Public Library, Chazen Museum, Davis Museum at Wellesley College, Hood Museum at Dartmouth College, Smith College Art Museum, Herbert F. Johnson Museum at Cornell University, and others.
