Jacob S.

Artist, Photographer, Educator

Multi-disciplinary artist living in California with more than 10 years working experience in photographic and visual art mediums across a variety of industries (commercial art, e-comm, editorial, illustration). Projects I've worked on have been featured in publications such as The NYT, LAT, Interview! Magazine, Gayletter Magazine, Purple magazine, Voyage LA and The Thrillist. As a gallery assistant at L.A. Louver I worked in direct support of David Hockney’s gallerist, Peter Goulds, as well as five directors of sales and communications. Today, I live and work in Oakland, CA. When I'm not leading students in media art classes, I maintain a robust art practice at home. Photography, drawing, painting, and digital art mediums are all created in a fluidly shifting fashion. I'm a zealous humanist, outdoors enthusiast, driven by the desire to know stories and landscapes.
