The Lie

aka Jason Turner

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?


I don't remember. I just loved to draw when I was young and haven't stopped since. 



Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding


Rodney Mullen. I skated for like 2 years. Never was any good so I gave it up pretty quickly.

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?


I can't narrow it down to just one. So many artists inspire me in different ways. Greg Simpkins, Conor Harrington, Jean‑Michel Basquiat, and Herakut have definitely have helped form my style.



When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing


Play hockey or hang out at home with my wife and daughter. 



Who are your biggest influences


My family and all the other artists around me. 



What mediums do you enjoy working in?


I really dig spray paint.
