AD 5 | Jesse Draxler
"Creation Through Destruction"

Jesse Draxler is a fine artist, illustrator, art director and designer currently working out of Los Angeles, CA.


His works are representations of the feelings he has been working through all his life.  Feelings that arise while confronted with a past that is relatively unknown, a future that seems as daunting and horrifying as it does exciting, and a present in which he often feels stale and out of touch with himself.  All with the undercurrent of death forever lurking subtly under the surface of everything he creates.


Jesse's client list as an illustrator includes The New York Times and Target.  He's also worked with musicians Prince, Chelsea Wolfe, and The Black Queen (feat. members of NIN, Telefon Tel Aviv and Dillinger Escape Plan), and as an art director / collagist he's worked with magazines Dazed & Confused, Dansk, No Tofu... etc.

About

"I started this series as a means for exploration, an exploration of self, and an exploration of the perspectives of other artists.

This series is an unabridged documentation of conversations between artists. It’s a series dedicated to breaking down the barriers we tend to set up in our own minds. I want to inspire future creatives to have the courage to explore and experiment. This is about making dreams a reality and not about letting our dreams fall to the wayside.

My intention is to give my audience a sense of real human connection, something that feels rich and organic.

When I was thinking of a title I thought of the word “movement”.

In relation to the Renaissance period in art, my goal for this program is to signify a rebirth of consciousness towards the way we look at contemporary art."
