Meet Featured Artist, Jeff Kovalcik!
Jeff's drawings are on display now through September 5th at our South Lamar location.
A Central Texas native, Jeff Kovalcik grew up in New Braunfels, just 50 miles south of Austin. In 2002, he began his undergraduate studies at The University of Texas at Austin, where he obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
When we spoke with Jeff, he recalled an experience he had during his Intro to Drawing class. While sketching the male figure, his professor asked him to experiment with white chalk on black paper (rather than charcoal on white). To Jeff, this just made sense. The technique of sculpting light seemed to come naturally.
