About Rich Jacobs:
Rich Jacobs (born 1972 in Long Beach Ca.) has been drawing and making art his entire life. His work has been shown in many galleries and museums, and his murals can be found around the globe. Jacobs’ designs have made their way onto a diverse array of products and mediums… everyrhing from textiles, clothing, bags, pillows, shoes, skateboards, record covers, books, and magazines. Actively involved early on in underground d.i.y. self publishing, skateboarding and music, his recent work has shifted towards more fine art and graphic design pattern based explorations, but the work maintains a rawness, immediacy and earnestness that informed his early output.
Choosing to work both within the figurative and more abstracted realms -Jacobs crosses back & forth with no set boundary lines, or strict purism. Many things influence his life, but self expression has always been at the center of art. Life experiences and travel have had their greatest effect on him. The artist also plays lots of music, curates large group art exhibitions, and helps raise his five year old son. He feels very lucky to be able to do what he does, and strives to always express extreme gratitude for the chance he has been given.
