As an artist Jason speaks his mind out through his work. Jason’s themes combine controversy and idols bringing them down from their pedestals by their most human of elements. His most of the work shows his demon side. With use of tentacles and wet colours the artist provokes strong emotion within every viewer on a variety of topics.
Jason’s art has progressed into a more political nature over time. The artist uses canvas to give his views and opinions about anything.
According to Jason, “Framing is an intricate part of my process. It represents the universal darkness that we all struggle with. The fight between good and evil. It brings me back to a more classic time when big ornate frames were used to complement and honor beautiful pieces of art. I carefully pick the accent colors and use my frames to help portray the emotion of its chosen piece of work. The painting and the frame work as partners evoking feeling. Basically I get off on making people uncomfortable.”
Jason is a very renown artist. His works are appreciated everywhere. In 2018 at Queens ,New York Jason’s work was awarded as best in show and back in 2014 was awarded best in show art fusion at United ink, Nassau Coliseum ,Long Island NY.
