Noble Hardesty

Noble Hardesty


Straddling a fine line between fantasy and reality, Noble Hardesty’s work is an exploration of the blur in between. He’s constantly creating, driven by an indelible desire for proficiency and endlessly inspired by the verboten; tattoos, comic books, cartoons, lowbrow culture, pop culture, essentially anything that is supposed to be hands-off or taboo. His process often begins with a novel idea for a title as well as research to refine concepts into images.
