About the Artist:
Paul Rogers is no stranger to firsts and foremosts. He created the first Jazz Fest poster celebrating a Marsalis: Wynton in 2002. He is the co-author with Wynton of Jazz ABZ: An A to Z Collection of Jazz Portraits (2005; winner of a Bologna Ragazzi Award; a Norman Sugarman Honor and an International Reading Association Children’s Book Award) and their 2012 follow-up, Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp!: A Sonic Adventure. Rogers also collaborated on Bob Dylan’s Forever Young (2008) and has written or co-written many other books.
His 2016 silk-screened Jazz Fest Poster is an expansion of the subtle polychromism he explored fourteen years ago in that now-classic companion poster. Rogers’ “soulful precision” style is not an oxymoron in his hands. He is the inheritor of the mantle once worn by the greatest European poster artists of the first half of the 20th Century: Cassandre (French), Hohlwein (German) and McKnight Kauffer (British / American).
Recognizing his signature style, the U. S. Postal Service commissioned five stamps, including the first one commemorating jazz (called simply, JazzStamp) that played to his personal passion. In addition to his rare paintings in galleries and museums here and in Europe, he has received commissions from the National Academy of Recording Arts
and Sciences (awarders of the Grammys) and The New York Times (his self-initiated drawings made on his return a year after Katrina generated an anniversary remembrance in its Sunday edition). His work also appears regularly in TheNew Yorker. He has been honored by the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Association of Illustrators / London, The Society of Illustrators and Graphis Poster, among numerous others.
