Chawne Paige

“I’ve been designing things for a while now, since about 1996. Though my passion lays in graphic design and typography, they by no means have been my only focus. I keep myself busy with public art, exhibitions, digital arts education, arts advocacy, and volunteering around the statewide community,” said Chawne on his website.

During his residency at Popopstudios, Chawne designed a mural to help refurbish the rear entrance and working area of the gallery/studios.
