About Taylor


Taylor Mazer was born and raised in Kalamazoo, MI in 1988. He drew prolifically throughout high school earning various high school based awards. He went on later to attend Kendall College of Art and Design.

Taylor has a keen eye for the city. But what you won’t find in his work are sweeping skylines or postcard views of famous monuments. Rather Mazer favors the less glamorous side of the city. Street signs, lamp polls, highways and electrical lines are all common images in his work.

His meticulously detailed drawings are both elegant and gritty. It’s hard to look at a Taylor’s drawing and not want to get up close to follow his lines, or to become captivated by his dramatic shading, and stark light and dark contrasts. So when Taylor draws a trashcan or a street pole, he’s not shedding a negative light on the city (in fact, he seems to love it!), rather he is simply asking that we look at it from the less obvious perspective. And sometimes that makes all the difference.

Absolutely awesome!

Phenomenal.

Love how dark and detailed it is.

Nice!

love the values and perspective and details. Excellent capture of the tunnel effect when walking in an inner city space. You have created the atmosphere and textures of brick, glass, metal and a total industrial architectural masterpiece.

simply lovely was the first thing that came to mind when J first saw this piece.
