About Gage


Gage Hamilton is founder of Portland’s public arts project Forest For The Trees, as well as Seattle’s SODO Track. In addition to his curatorial and directorial roles, he is a muralist, illustrator and filmmaker.

Established in 2013, Forest For The Trees is a non-profit project dedicated to the creation of contemporary public art in Portland. The festival brings together local and international artists in a collaborative setting and provides them with the freedom and resources to create artworks in environments that are freely accessible to the local community.


Gage's selections


Michael Reeder

Dallas, TX

"His approach to the figure is so unique, but it’s his fascination with the medium that really helps set his work apart. He geeks out about paint more than anyone I’ve ever worked with."

Joram Roukes

Groningen, the Netherlands

"Joram strikes a balance between chaos and order, abstract and realism, to capture the grotesque beauty of life. Watching him paint is as inspiring as it is humbling."

Aryz

Barcelona, Spain

"Aryz has a variety of styles and abilities, but my favorites tend to be his graphic skeleton patterns. His simplified, repeating subjects create uniquely monumental works."

John Grade

Seattle, WA

"I had the opportunity to see Middle Fork in Seattle, which was an ambitious and inspiring piece. I appreciate an artist that values the process, from creation to decay, and considers much more than the finished object."

Hoda Zarbaf

Toronto, ON, Canada

"I love artists that don’t let their past work limit their future work. Curiosity leads to good things."
