Jason Maloney graduated with a Bachelor of Fine arts in Painting and Drawing from Cal State Fullerton, but his connection with art began long before he received his diploma. As early as five years old, Jason began drawing and continued throughout his youth. Inspiration came from his fascination with 80s skateboard graphics, Friday the 13th- kind of horror movies, and heavy metal groups like Iron Maiden. He eventually landed a job with Disney as a scenic artist, working on projects like remodelling the Haunted Mansion into Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Now Maloney’s art can be seen in gallery shows and public murals in places like Laguna, Costa Mesa, Jersey City, and the YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California. He has also designed for companies like Nike, Hurley, Quiksilver, and Grind King. Maloney says his art, created with everything from oils to pencils, is his interpretation of the world around him. He has said he wants to always “remain teachable and to help other artists, especially younger ones who are just starting out.”
