Vincent Jackson

b. 1961, San Francisco CE artist since 1984

Vincent Jackson is one of the most prolific and longest practicing artists at Creativity Explored. Jackson is known for his large-scale figurative oil pastels. His thick, defining lines break the human form into geometric shapes filled with a heavy impasto of layered colors arranged with Jackson’s masterful sense of harmony. The resulting mask-like works can be viewed as a contemporary renewal of traditional African and Oceanic folk art imagery. "My faces are my way of telling a story rather than writing," he remarks.

Jackson’s work was chosen to adorn the third series of artisanal chocolates from Recchiuti Confections. Additionally, CB2 selected Jackson's work for a number of limited-edition products including a tote, rug, pillow and ceramic vase.

VIDA produced a curated collection of colorful masks, scarves, totes, clutches and glass trays using Jackson's abstract oil pastel drawings.

Jackson's work has been exhibited internationally.
