I unveiled my ‘YIN AND YANG’ painting that I did for the Celebrating the circle art show at first studio in down town Phoenix last night. It was a great turn out despite the rainy weather. I am stoked how this painting turned out, specially because I painted it only one week before the shows opening. There was definitely still wet areas when while it was showing. I feel like everything in life is circular. I am a big fan of Karma, and feel like what goes around comes around. Day and night, positivity and negativity, good and bad, every thing has its opposite and there is a duality between the two. ” THE YIN AND THE YANG ”

I was stoked to be one of the artists chosen to do a mini mural panel for an installation in down town Mesa.  The light rail has been extended to reach down town mesa and there is a hard working community of creative people behind the scenes to make it an art location.  The piece that I created is titled “PRICKLY POP” oil, acrylic, and spray paint on wood panel.  I really like how it turned out and decided to do a small limited edition print run.  They are 11″ by 17″ signed numbered edition of ONLY 75.  I have also priced these at only $25 each!! Get one while they last!




I was honored to be chosen as one of the top artists in Arizona and got to participate in the Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) Art showcase!  Here is the painting that I did for the event! Growing up Disney’s Robin Hood is one of my all time favorite movies and I love how all of the old cartoons would get drunk somehow!  I love cartoons and wish the ones on Tv now a days were like the old classics!  In this painting I added Sir Hiss  having a “Golly What A Day”.

 I am excited to announce the print released of my oil painting “DAY OF THE DEAD MONARCH BUTTERFLY”.  Each print is hand signed, numbered and embossed stamped.  The prints measures 16″ by 20″ and are printed on a thick 120 lb. acid free paper, Edition of 300.  They are available NOW in the shop for $55.00 each!  I am very happy with how these look and love the powerful meaning behind the image.  I really hope this brings awareness about the deforestation in these poor Mexico cities that are the home to millions of Monarch Butterflies.  These Forest are being leveled by big Corporations and not only is that terrible on its own, another result is its killing millions of Monarch Butterflies.  These are beautiful and amazing creatures and I would hate to see them disappear.

I have just finished my latest painting that I have been working on.  This one is titled “WORK HARD PLAY HARD”.  I grew up watching old school cartoons and I still love them to this day.  I feel like they are timeless and will always be close to peoples hearts.  I was also raised with a strong work ethic and I take pride in what I do.  With hard work comes rewards and sometimes you have to treat yourself.  I have always been a social person and I enjoy a cold beer and some good times.  So when I work hard I also play hard!

Enjoy Life,

Years ago I painted a shark cello for a charity event that supplies instruments for under privileged kids.  I loved how it came out and It brought some money to a good cause.  I missed painting on instruments so I decided it was time to do another one.  It was the Discovery channels shark week last week so i was inspired by my last one but painting a violin this time I chose a much smaller fish.  My “GOLDFISH VIOLIN” is oil, acrylic, and spray paint on a violin.  I added fish hooks, fishing line strings and weights for a unique touch.  This is for sale for $850

I am happy to announce the release of my equality stickers.  I did this painting last year when Arizona legislature was trying to pass a law giving business owners the right to deny service to gays and lesbians.  I am happy to say that it was not passed and since then the United States has passed the law that it is legal for anyone to get married anywhere!! I am proud of the recent changes and decisions that our country has made toward equality! #LOVEWINS   These stickers are for sale for only $2.00 each. 


After my recent trip to Chicago, I was lucky enough to catch a Chicago Cubs Game and it just happened to be a throw back “Chicago Whales” game!  It inspired me to do a painting.  This is “Chicago Whales” (Cubbles) Oil and acrylic on wood panel with a vintage frame.  CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN!!     email for price

My most recent painting was inspired by a documentary that I watched on the migration of the Monarch Butterfly.  This was an amazing film that showed how these tiny little insect travels immense distances across the country to hibernate in warmer climates.  These Butterflies also somehow remember the exact tree to return back to!  Sadly one of these major forest areas is a poor town in Mexico and the lumber corporations have moved in and are cutting down all of the trees. This deforestation is causing the death of millions of Monarch Butterflies!  The locals embrace the migration and believe that the return of the butterflies every year is the return of their ancestors souls.   Many of the locals are also secretly cutting down these trees for money to support their families!  It saddens me that it has become such a money driven situation and a catch 22.  I hope my painting helps bring awareness of this and hopefully inspires some change.

My latest painting is a piece I did for an art contest.  The theme is to create something that conveys Justice, Human rights, power, or action.  I am very happy with the concept that I have done and I hope it does well.

I am not a fan of Valentine’s Day, and I have never been! Its not because I am currently single. Even when I was in a few of my longer relationships, I still hated it. I feel like its a forced corporate holiday that makes everyone feel obligated to spend money on their “special someone”. Blah Blah Blah. That being said I was inspired to make some new art pieces. Below Is a new “LOVE GRENADE” “HEART ATTACK” Its a hand sculpted, molded, cast in resin, painted. I have only made a few of these, check them out.

I just got back from San Diego and while I was out there visiting friends I dropped off a couple free art pieces in random locations.  One in Pacific Beach behind The Shore Club and one in Mission Beach in front of The Wave House.  I had a note attached to the back saying “Congratulations and asking for photos of them with their new art”.  I loved to be able to do this and I will be doing it at least once a month! you can follow me on instagram @jaredaubel for pics of my art and spots where I leave free art sometimes!

Anti-war art has always been some of my favorite.  Many of my fellow artists have created some inspiring anti war art.  Some of my favorites are the iconic Shepard Fairey, and Ron English.  They have taken serious political issues and used their fine art craft to create a message.   I realize that sometimes war is inevitable, but I feel like now a days it all has hidden agendas.  I was happy to be chosen to participate in a “MAKE ART NOT WAR” themed show.  The piece I created is a simple, playful but powerful, interpretation of the words “make art not war”.  I am stoked on the way this painting came out and have got such a positive reaction from the shows and viewers that I will be getting signed numbered prints of it made.  Stay tuned for release date.

I was lucky enough to be in Chicago for the lollapalooza weekend!  It was amazing!  I got to see family, party with friends for my birthday, and check out some awesome shows and galleries!  One in particular was the Art Alliance, Provocateurs! This show contained over 40 artists including some of my all time favorites; Shepard Fairey, Keith Harring, Space Invader, D*FACE, SWOON, REVOK, RETNA, and WK Interact.  While in town I also got to see some of my art along side of the OBEY GIANT campaign and around  Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs Stadium!  It was a very inspirational trip and will help push me toward future goals.

My “The Oceans Calling” painting was inspired by my love of the ocean and the beach life stlye!  living in Arizona, several times a year I get the strong desire (a calling) to get out of the heat and get to the ocean.  I love everything about it and I am constantly drawn to it!  There is just something calming about the tides and It puts beach goers in a friendly laid back mood.

    I also strongly believe that we need to change what we are doing to them!  We are over fishing and heavily polluting our oceans!  Although the ocean covers two thirds of the earth, it is surprisingly vulnerable to the human influence.  80% of marine pollution originates from inland, and most of it is plastic.  Please do some research and make an effort!  The Ocean is a huge part of the earths water cycle!  Our Residents, Businesses and government agencies need to work together and start to make some changes before its to late!  Our Life Depends On It!
