Jacob Korson is an Urban Contemporary Artist from Torrance, California currently living in Arizona. His work practices involves the use of various mediums and techniques putting together old and new materials. Using wood, metal, canvas and discarded paper to create his paintings that are unlike traditional artwork. Completely self taught he is inspired by early street art and graffiti, realism and 80’s Pop Art combined to form his current style of artistic expression. Korson’s work draws attention with a mashup of bold color, collage of patterns/textures and use of handmade stencils. The work is saturated with bright eye catching color and adolescent imagery influenced by life, love and mortality in American culture.
