Jim Ford is a painter, collage artist and type designer. Following up on his previous solo exhibition, “High Fleaux” continues to tell the story of the artist’s growth and development with a collection of signature works. Ford creates abstract “collage paintings” with subtle notes of humour, history and culture. “High Fleaux” features some of his key works made in Milwaukee since 2017.
Jim Ford is an accomplished type designer and visual artist living and working in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He studied art and design, graduating in 2005 with a BFA in Graphic Design from Columbia College Chicago. While honing his craft as a type designer, Ford also forayed into poster art, creating silkscreened editions for shows and events. Around this time, Ford developed his collage techniques further and began moving toward abstraction. Striking a harmonious balance between art and type, Ford continues to evolve as a dynamic creative person.
