Hank Yaghooti is an American contemporary mixed media artist from Jersey City, NJ. Using comics, occult books and photographs as a source of reference, he employs oil, acrylic and watercolor along with other mediums on paper, wood or canvas in his technique.
Yaghooti pursued art education early on while in elementary school, and followed through on his endeavors completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Communication Design with a concentration in Illustration from New Jersey City University in 2000.
Influenced by European painters and contemporary American illustrators alike, he counts Francis Bacon, Zdzislaw Beksinski, Alex Grey, and Egon Schiele as some of his prominent influences.
