Oakland native Jamie Servais studied drawing, printmaking and painting at Hampshire College in Massachusetts, where he received a BA in Studio Art. Currently he serves as the lead artist in education for Southern Exposure Gallery’s Youth Artist Board program, and he works with special needs youth in East Oakland. Servais believes that drawing is an act of finding rather than creating – an artist is one who likes to look under stones. For him, drawing is a meditation, a ritual, a very logical system, a big joke.
