Jeff Soto recently posted up a time-lapse video on his blog of him painting “The Corruption of Mankind,” one of his largest pieces from his show at the Riverside Art Museum. It’s always interesting to get a glimpse of an artist’s creative process. Discuss Jeff Soto here.
Jeff Soto gave an interesting talk along with a slideshow last night at the Riverside Art Museum to his strong fan base in the area.Â He covered his graffiti roots, childhood, inspirations, and took the audience through a progression of his work.Â It was very instructive to hear what was important (family, Riverside area, politics, etc) to Jeff in his painting, and to really understand the transitions and beginnings of his work.Â Afterwards, he took time to sign books and chat with all his fans. […]
For those who haven’t seen Jeff Soto’s show “Turning in Circles” yet, here’s a good opportunity to stop by for a visit.

There will also be a Q & A session and a signing afterwards for his book, “Storm Clouds”. Feb 5 (7:30 â€“ 9 pm) Riverside Art Museum […]
Riverside native Jeff Soto returned to his roots last night for his first museum show entitled “Turning in Circles” (previewed). Judging from the great turnout, his hometown liked what they saw.Â There were familiar faces as well as many new ones, with a large number of fans making the trek east from the greater LA area for this epic show. Everyone walked away impressed by the scale and quality of this mostly new body of work – for good reason as Jeff poured his heart […]
Jeff Soto’s first museum show “Turning in Circles” (previewed) is set to open this Saturday, December 13th at the Riverside Art Museum. He has been hard at work on this show for over a year now and it promises to be an epic one. We sat down with him to talk a little about the show after the jump…

AMÂ Â was able to stop by last week to check out Jeff Soto’s installation of his show at the Riverside Art Museum.Â We aren’t able to show you everything as we wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise, but we do have some tasty images to keep you happy until opening night – December 13th (6-9 pm). As you can see from the photos, the museum has given JeffÂ ample space to work with for his first museum show – and he has taken full advantage with some of […]
Here is a little teaser video for the project we are working on with the good people at Modus Films. It’s a mini-documentary on Jeff Soto and his first ever museum show. The exhibit is entitled “Turning in Circles” (teased) and will open on December 13th at the Riverside Art Museum. Stopped by yesterday to take a look at the installation – it will be epic. AM will have a preview for you in the next several days as well as more surprises.
Here is Part II of our visit to Jeff Soto’s studio (see part I here). Besides showing us some of his new work for his upcoming show at the Riverside Art Museum, Jeff also decided to let us watch him paint. At first, there were just splotches of color he used as the background, but soon characteristic shapes and details were added. It was a real joy to watch Jeff at work and amazing how quickly he worked. See the process after the jump.
