Jackson is a 24 year-old artist from Chicagoland. His unique style that combines traditional painting techniques with bursts of contemporary influence have been described as “pop collage paintings." His most recent body of work has taken on a more existential flavor and symbolist turn exploring human evolution and behavior in the context of popular culture.

In 2018 Jackson received his BFA in painting from the University of Notre Dame. He now floats between Chicago and Grand Rapids, where he will finish the MFA painting program at the Kendall College of Art and Design with his Spring 2021 thesis show entitled Fancy Monkeys: The Animal That Became A God.

"Because there is so much going on in my paintings, they can have a tendency to dominate the wall on which they are displayed. The bold color and variety of imagery really pop off the wall in the same ironic fashion that a lot of "Pop Art" does. I purposely compose my paintings in a way that will physically express this bombardment of pop culture that we are all subjected to as human beings on the Internet in 2021."
