Emily Fromm

With clean lines and a flat, limited color palette, Emily Fromm employs a style reminiscent of vintage cartoons and comic books to illustrate contemporary urban landscapes. Having been raised in the outskirts of Los Angeles, she was heavily influenced by the over-the-top yet seedy aesthetic of the American west, and highlights signage, architecture and the iconic style of the region in her paintings. She applies a nostalgic graphic style to these settings, incorporating imagery that is mundane and often low brow, to contrast these grandiose scenes with everyday life.

Since earning her BA in Studio Art from San Francisco State University in 2013, Fromm has exhibited her paintings at numerous Northern California galleries including The Luggage Store Gallery, STUDIO Gallery, Mighty Box Gallery and Incline Gallery. She also curates community art shows for The Honey Hive Gallery in San Francisco, illustrates for several magazines and publishing houses, and works as a custom muralist. Previous clients include Ulysses Press, Insomniac Events, FomaLabs, Front, IfOnly.com, SourceClear and others.


The 2018 LVJFF artwork by Bay Area artist Emily Fromm depicts the historic Blue Angel originally designed by Betty Willis who also designed the famous Welcome to Las Vegas Sign. For over 60 years our Blue Angel stood as a Guardian Angel of Las Vegas. Soon after being removed from her pedestal, the tragic massacre on October 1, 2017 occurred. In the spirit of her pending restoration and return to prominence, our LVJFF utilizes her symbolic significance in the spirit of Tikkun Olam תיקון עולם repairing the world and healing our community.
