Emerging Artist 2013: Jim Gottuso – Louisville, Kentucky

Gottuso’s confident yet indecipherable “script” resides somewhere between calligraphy and graffiti—a sort of hybrid narrative frieze. The forms are subtle and approachable, allowing the surface etching to be the focal point, inviting touch and use.
