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.

"My portraits are inspired by master works, as well as the contemporary human condition. They explore the dissonance created when the familiar is fractured and distorted by outside influence." - Emilio Villalba

"I was born in cozy Madison, WI, but ever since that day I have not set foot on Wisconsin again. In all honesty, I haven’t really been actively avoiding this generous land of cheese and beer. Given the very attractive winters that this icebox of a state has to offer, I was happy that my parents decided to return to Colombia before my first birthday. I spent my first 17 years in Bogotá and after finishing High School I went to New York to study Illustration in SVA. After graduating I worked at Evergreene Painting Studios, a mural painting studio, and at The Studio, an illustration studio where I did animatics, storyboards, print jobs, together with some illustration jobs (paperbacks, jackets, etc). After two years of constant and diligently supervised drawing, I decided to go back home to Colombia and be free to paint full time. What was a hard decision at first, turned into the best career move. I have been able to paint what I love, and be surrounded by friends and family. Today, I am happily married and live with my beautiful wife Claudia in Bogotá who just gave birth to our first baby, Samuel. He quickly became the reason I work." - Nicolas Uribe
