JAKE HART, son and grandson of internationally renowned artists David and Pro Hart, Jake has seen a lifetime of creativity.
Born in 1992, Jacob was immediately thrown into the culture and mind of the art world. While constantly surrounded by a wealth of skill and knowledge at home, he also picked up studying art at school and continued with it until graduating. After finishing he left to study at a private design college; from there he went on to work as a graphic designer. Most recently he landed the title of Creative Director at a well-established company in Brisbane. Although young, Jacob is proving himself a force in the creative industries.
The Identity series is his breakout as a professional artist and sees him working with his own designs. The series is an in-depth exploration of the human condition, expressing an understanding of the pursuit of identity as a quintessentially human trait. The urban style is a launch pad for scenes which embody "the desire to be more than just a number".
Jacob’s designs are hand painted, then photographed and altered digitally, with a hand-touch unique to each piece. The canvas prints are in editions of 25 and each is individually hand-embellished.
