AJ Masthay is a Connecticut native, currently based in Hartford. He is known for his concert art, or “gig prints”, which he creates using the medium of reduction block printing. In an industry where digital design is considered best practice, his hand-carved linoleum block prints set his work apart. His blending of traditional techniques with his love of live music has made him one of today’s most prominent figures in the rock art industry.

AJ received his BFA from the Hartford Art School, where he majored in printmaking with a minor in art history. Four years later, in 2001, he established his own letterpress studio. His work, he writes, “is heavily influenced by nature, developed through a deep love of life drawing and the figure. The graphic elements of my work are derived from vintage sign painters of the early 1900s with a touch of 60’s pinstriping.”

AJ’s long list of clients include The Grateful Dead, Black Sabbath, Dead and Company, Foo Fighters, South Park, The Jerry Garcia Estate, Widespread Panic, Umphrey’s McGee, and many others.
