Jim Sweazy

Jim Sweazy is an artist and restoration craftsman, living in the Arizona desert. Jim's training and experience combine old-school methods and techniques with modern materials, whether in mechanical projects like classic or antique cars and motorcycles, or in fine art with the same themes.

Jim's diverse education in the arts includes a BFA in General Design, emphasizing Graphic Design and Visual Communication from the California College of Arts and Crafts, and an MA in Painting and Drawing from Arkansas State University. His original paintings have been on display in one-man and group shows in Scottsdale, Chicago, Atlanta, Little Rock, and Tucson, and now hang in corporate and private collections across America and Europe.

The desert environment of intense light and wind/weather erosion, and the resulting subtle colors and shapes found in the Southwest vistas have influenced his art. A favorite them is the worn down paint and lettering truck and equipment doors, showing a history of hard use and exposure to the elements. Shaped panels to build three dimensions onto a flat painted surface mimic the cliffs and mesas found in the desert regions, while emphasizing design elements and distinctive shapes found on a certain vehicle.
