Windsor, Ontario based artist, Jeff Denomme, is the visionary behind Haunted Zoo, an art brand described as Hello Kitty meets Tim Burton. Jeff’s art is loved by children and adults alike. His work includes digital illustrations, paintings and large-scale murals.
At 19, Jeff created his first brand, Fathom Clothing, which led him to travel across North America on the Vans Warped Tour and sponsor bands such as Silverstein, Taking Back Sunday and Matchbook Romance. Fathom Clothing was worn in music videos featured on MTV and had orders worldwide.
In his mid-20s, while living in Vancouver, British Columbia, Jeff took what he learned from operating Fathom and created Haunted Zoo, a more visually cohesive and recognizable brand. During the near decade he spent living on the west coast, Jeff was active in the arts community by curating and exhibiting in countless events. Jeff gained recognition in the city when he placed second in the Telus Artist Challenge and subsequently became a featured artist at the Whistler Ski and Snowboard Festival, which included live painting and collaborations with brands such as Volcom, Toms and Land Yachts.
Jeff has shared his passion for art by speaking at I Heart Van Art and TEDx at the University of Windsor. Recently, his art has been exhibited alongside work by Denial, Ron English and Banksy.
By day, Jeff is the Owner and Chief Creative Officer of Hot Hive Branding & Design Studio. He is passionate about his community, gardening and tackling home renovation projects (which are almost exclusively guided by Youtube tutorials and fueled with Canadian Sneaky Weasel beer).
