Krab Jab Studio in Seattle, WA, is not unfamiliar with curating shows to cover a host of mediums and artistic styles, always bringing an essence of the unusual into the mix. With their ethos to support up and coming artists as well as the well-established, Krab Jab Studio has created a space where worlds collide. Their ability to bring you the highest quality original art has helped them to make a name within different artistic cultures: the realism artists, the surrealists, the illustrators and fine art creators to name a few… all have featured works within this gallery with refreshing versatility.
In their latest exhibition, Krab Jab Studio brings to you a selection of new works from three well-respected artists, all from very different artistic backgrounds. Mark Poole, David Gray and Bud Cook, together with Krab Jab Studio, proudly bring you Femina Mystica. Curated by gallery owner and fellow artist Julie Baroh, Femina Mystica opens up the topic of the female form to be explored within divergent surroundings.

Bud Cook: Influential illustrator and painter, Bud Cook has created numerous works for well-established clients including Wizards of the Coast (Magic: The Gathering), Image comics and Dark Horse comics. His striking portraitures are easily recognised, merging bold brush strokes and colors to create tenderly insightful works.
Mark Poole: Primarily an oil painter, Mark Poole’s works have taken the world by storm. With a background in illustration, his more recent works focus on imaginative realism where he explores the merging boundaries between our world and the next, bringing touches of dream-like scenarios with core elements of explorative emotion. Previous clients include Cirque du Soleil, Magic: The Gathering, Blizzard Entertainment, Dungeons and Dragons and White Wolf Studios.
David Gray: Realist painter David Gray is perhaps best well known for his still life paintings and insightful portraits. His painting style has often been commented on as creating scenes of inner peace, paying homage to the Classical tradition of painting while infusing each piece with his own gently contemporary edge. Also a teacher of the arts, David tutors workshops throughout the year alongside his personal painting projects. His works have received worldwide publicity, including in Southwest Art, Art of the West, and American Art Collector.
