Jack Fowler was born in Ada and raised in eastern Oklahoma. He worked as a journalist, school teacher, cowboy, and musician before becoming a full-time artist in 2011, and since then, his work has been shown from Arizona to Uganda. Known for his pop-art-influenced portraits and landscapes, Fowler has also created three large murals in downtown Oklahoma City, including the controversial “Bricktown Okctopus,” the first non-historical mural allowed in Bricktown. He is a freelance writer, photographer, and cartoonist, and hosts “Tumbleweeds All the Way Down,” a weekly roots music show on 91.7 The Spy. His studio is in the Paseo neighborhood of Oklahoma City.
I’d like to be the best painter in the world, but since I’m not, I’m happy being a painter in the world.
