Veve (he/him) depicts uncanny juxtapositions, surrealistic storytelling, and commentary on contemporary and historical subjects. His work is often paired with essays and articles to creatively render their scientific or journalistic content visually. In illustrations as well as sculptures and installations, he frequently blends genres, styles, and subject matters “to show that categories we often think of as binary and mutually exclusive are actually fundamentally intertwined, intersectional, and codependent.” Veve’s vividly detailed compositions—a Sonoran Desert toad applying lipstick, absurd furniture designs, a reinterpretation of an Aesop fable—have been printed in numerous national publications, exhibited in galleries, and installed in subway stations and other public settings. He currently teaches drawing at the University of the Arts. Veve earned a BFA in illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design.
