San Francisco illustrator and skate culture icon Jeremy Fish created most of the paintings, drawings and screen prints presented in Rome-antic Delusions—part of Drago’s 36 Chambers series—while living in Rome, in symbiosis with the city. Slightly stunned upon arrival, Fish was quickly submerged in the city’s ambiance, which can best be described as a cocktail of pure decadence with a splash of classicism and a twist of naivete, served in a Baroque glass. Fish describes this book as a “word play where reality and fantasy meet.” Jeremy Fish received his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1996. After finishing university Jeremy worked for the skateboard industry in S.F. First as a production manager for screen printing, and later as the art director for Think Skateboards. In 2001 he left the skateboard industry to pursue his artwork. Jeremy’s artwork deals with the relationship of all things cute and odd. His work uses a library of symbols and characters to tell narrative stories about real life in a surreal way. Blending the old with the new, the sweet and approachable. Color.
