Zachary Bohnenkamp – Printmaker/Muralist

Zach was born beside the railroad tracks in Iowa City. He spent most of his childhood in a tunnel beneath the very tracks upon which his first blood spilled, and where he discovered his love for all things that grow from the ground. An adventurer by birthright, he first reached the Gulf of México at age 7 on a raft he fashioned from lilac branches.

For the last 20 years, he has called Seattle home but the rich black soil of his homeland still remains between his toes, where morel mushroom grow to this day.

He remains committed to putting art in public for everyone to share and continues to make murals in the Seattle area and around the world.


I like to travel. I like to paint. I like to paint when I travel.
