Aaron Noble

American , 1961 -

Noble's self-described "core practice is large scale site-specific wall painting with related works on paper and canvas. The work is a synthesis of three distinct practices: comics, collage, and muralism (both traditional and spraycan). The superhero comics of the sixties and seventies were my first aesthetic training ground. As a fan, collector and wannabe pro-cartoonist I became conversant with the extraordinarily dynamic and seductive vocabulary of ink line rendering techniques developed by a group of brilliant, mostly working class, mid-century cartoonists including Wallace Wood, Neal Adams, Steve Ditko, Gene Colan, and the towering figure of Jack Kirby, whose exaggeration and abstraction of the human form paved the way for the deeply fetishistic superhero comics drawn by a later generation in the 1990s."
