Jesse Jaeger


Artist Bio

Born in Atlanta, Jesse Jaeger became drawn to art at a young age, and has been working professionally in the industry for almost a decade.  

Jesse began showing in 2007.  Since then, he has continuously had art at exhibitions throughout the years, while also working as a graphic designer.  Various organizations along the east coast have commissioned his art and design, constructing a wide scope of work in his wheelhouse throughout his career.  

The streets on which he was raised are the major influencers of his art.  Jesse also draws inspiration from both graffiti and street art, abandoned buildings, urban existence, hand-painted signs, and the ebb and flow of daily living.  Fueled by more than one cup of coffee, his daily creative mixes sketching and street art, as seen by his original cartoons sprawled across legal mediums in the city.

His work has been described as fluid caricatures, with stark contrast between his black and white strokes.  To Jesse, his style is all over the place, meant to flow without being uniform.  His ideation technique is similar to navigating a packed dance floor, taking something chaotic and simplifying it.  

Jesse currently lives and works in Atlanta, GA.
