Idahoans are proud to call artist Ward Hooper their own. Yes, he does also create non-Idaho related pieces, but Idaho wouldn’t be the same without his touch. So we’ll claim him as ours, thank you very much.


Hooper is well-known for his graphic posters with a vintage vibe. If you are unfamiliar with his work, then visit his website or, better yet, stop by his shop in downtown Boise. The Art of Ward Hooper Gallery is vintage eye candy. It contains plenty of his original work, including magnets and postcards that are perfect gifts. Better yet, you might even get a chance to chat with the artist himself.


Why stop in to meet a famous artist while you’re wandering downtown?


If you're in need of a business logo, then consider Hooper. He creates commissioned art and can design a logo that will set your company apart. It's also a great conversational piece at networking events.
