Ohio native and street artist Aaron Bleep is a CCAD graduate who developed a voice making graffiti in New Orleans and Los Angeles. In addition to street art and projection work, Bleep has developed a touring pop-up show he calls “Eat.”

“Eat” is a guerilla-style show that features an abundance of smaller works offered in a fun, often chaotic setting that Bleep described as “overwhelming in quantity.”

“I can work constantly,” Bleep said in an interview at a Clintonville eatery. “I've never had an issue with being uninspired. The world is magical.”

The pieces run the gamut from the uplifting to the unsettling and from the amusing to the off-putting. Bleep called his work an “amalgam of worldview, idolatry, concept, whatever.”

“I feel there's definitely a hodgepodge, but I don't really know where it comes from and I don't really ask that kind of question,” he said. “I just enjoy being able to sit and make marks.”
