Berklee Comstock started his career in art as far back as high school when he participated in the “Keep California Beautiful” exhibit in 2010. After the huge success of his work there he proceeded to receive his degree from Otis College of Art and Design in 2014. With new techniques and the education to back it, he started to blend his background in graffiti with his knowledge of the human figure to create a gestural portrait style. This culmination of mediums is the basis for the series of works to this point.
Though in 2020 Berklee took a shift in his work and instead of focusing on the person themselves, and instead started looking at society as a whole. In this photography series titled “the Streets of Bakersfield” became his first solo exhibit. He focused on found objects and how even simple objects could define a society. But the exhibit was cut short sadly due to the covid-19 pandemic. From this came the newest series in the Streets of Bakersfield series where used masks are the focus.
