About this artist

Aaron Hazel challenges the Western Art status quo with a body of work that encompasses the spirit, history, and truth of the West.  Hazel paints with an energetic looseness while maintaining high levels of realism and chooses subjects that he wants to learn more about.  “I want to disturb the status quo of what is deemed western art, unearthing the stories of the overlooked and underrepresented—minorities and women of the old West and the current West, I want to find stories that educate me and others.” – Aaron Hazel
