Jacoby is an eclectic and multi-disciplinary artist who is originally from Texas. In high school, he was really into art but was unable to participate in the events due to football taking up the majority of his time. In college, he suffered from headaches and a nagging injury which ended his hopes of playing in the NFL. With 200 dollars in the bank, he moved to Los Angeles, CA, to attend the Art Institute of Santa Monica. There he studied media arts and animation, film and fashion and is extremely interested in film directing.
Self-admitted, one recognizable flaw is he is easily bored, but not in the traditional sense. Meaning that if he were to start on a painting and gets an idea or inspiration for a drawing, a script, designs for a clothing line or music, he stops to works on them. This may happen multiple times in a day; these talents inspire each other.
FEELINGS: As an artist, I hope that in every finished work, it speaks both to me and to others. Merely capturing the image is not enough, it needs to have a life of it’s own.
He is influenced and inspired by the social, physical, and artistic environments of the world and everything it has to offer. His creations are often entwined with great story telling; however, he leaves enough room for others to form their own opinion of the work. He will use whatever tools comes to mind because different edges add levels of depth. He reveals the one thing that does not inspire him is to look at his own art work or to see the same style repeated too much. Art is forever changing, so to see other artists work brings the most enjoyment. Paintings are at their best when each viewer sees a piece differently, which suggestively reveals how they are feeling at the time.
