Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a solid surface. The medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush, but other implements, such as knives, sponges, and airbrushes, can be used. The final work is also called a painting. But the true talent is in the hands of painter who brings the life in the painting.

Jason’s themes combine controversy and idols bringing them down from their pedestals by their most human of elements. The recurring use of tentacles symbolizes the subject’s struggle with demons while mirroring his own. For better or worse, he provokes strong emotion within every viewer on a variety of topics in his unique signature “wet” style. He continually creates art that invites the viewer to think about what’s in the news and its common topics.
