Roast Hoggmann’s interest in art began at an early age, as he was completely immersed in the fantasy world of comic books and cartoons. After completing his BFA in Painting at Indiana University, Roast moved to Los Angeles, CA to pursue his artistic endeavors. His work explores both internal character flaws and societal issues through narratives populated by mythical monsters and satirical animals. This unique pairing of strangely relatable figures and themes leaves the viewer feeling uncomfortably involved.
