Jeff Axelrod

Assemblage Artist


As an Artist, I am a late bloomer-having spent 30+ years of my life in the pop-entertainment clothing manufacturing business in San Francisco, South of Market. Begining in1970, my company "Hip-O-Potamus Creations" was the first licensed manufacturer of silkscreen and private label t-shirts for Rock n Roll artists, concert tours, and the entertainment industry.

Being surrounded by and working with some of the most talented artists and designers, my own ideas, and impulses for creating art came to the fore in my life around 2002. My related passions for natural elements, international teas, popular culture and assemblage art have been the formative influences as an artist.

My trademark has become Tea Infused Art in combination with innovative Assemblage using Found Objects, Memorabilia and stuff I had when I was a kid.
