Based in Portland, Oregon, Jon Stommel and Travis Czekalski work together collectively as “Rather Severe”.

Rather Severe has collaborated professionally on murals, illustrations, animations, and public art since 2010. Their work transitions between aerosol and brush painting, transporting the viewer to a vibrant, graphic, and often hyper-stimulating environment inhabited with colorful characters and other abstract forms. Their aim is to inspire communities and to enrich the experience of being in public spaces.
