Ari Glass is a painter and designer born and raised in Seattle. He grew up in the Rainier Valley, Seattle. Glass attended art classes at Franklin High School and briefly studied graphic design at Seattle Central College, but otherwise has no formal artistic training. His paintings reveal personal narratives inspired by historical and fictional concepts of kings, queens, and kingdoms, and deal with concepts such as sovereignty and independence.
