Jermaine Rogers Biographical Information
For the last few years, Jermaine Rogers has been creating artwork that
challenges both the eyes and the imagination. With an original use of color
and an amazing line-art technique, Rogers has made a national reputation for
himself as a leader in the field of 'concert poster art'. His silkscreened
posters adorn the walls of galleries in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Australia.
Rogers has also done artwork for magazines, computer games, print-ads, CD
covers and major film sets. One thing is certain: Rogers artwork is like
nothing else on the 'pop-art' scene today.
Born in Houston, Texas in the beginning of the 1970's, Jermaine always
liked to draw. A fan of everything from MEGO Superhero action figures to Sid
& Marty Krofft TV shows, the weird and varied soup of the 1970's still
influences Jermaine's artwork till this day. With no profesional training,
Rogers has honed his craft by hardcore hours spent drawing...EVERYDAY. He
also studied the techniques of his favorite artists, especially Graham
Ingels, an often overlooked comic book artist who worked on the hugely
influential line of E.C. suspense comics of the early 1950's.
Drawing on the influences of past poster-artist greats such as Stanley
Mouse, Rick Griffin, and the ever-amazing Frank Kozik, Jermaine has created
amazing images that have graced hundreds of flyers and posters. He has done
artwork for a variety of shows, including such artists as Tool, The Chemical
Brothers, The Melvins, The Deftones, Radiohead, Bauhaus, The Flaming Lips,
Modest Mouse, Tori Amos, Helmet and hundreds of others. After a stint in
Seattle during the mid-90's, Rogers returned to Texas in 1998. He currently
works there, drawing pretty pictures, slingin' ink, and trying his best to
