Je lives and works in New York City. A trained figurative painter and draftsman, Je is an emerging artist, showcasing his work for the first time in 2019. Je currently focuses on portrait and figurative paintings--plus 2 lighthouses: one in New York City and another in Puerto Rico--that merge traditional and new oil painting techniques.
Initially a self-taught painter, Je had produced paintings mostly from his imagination. As a draftsman, Je has drawn portraits through venues that provide the opportunity to draw from live models. In recent years, Je has accelerated his craft by learning from gifted artists and teachers: Costa Vavagiakis, Max Ginsberg, and Sharon Sprung. Je's currently studying under Janet A. Cook.
Although he has been painting portraits that depict realistic view of the world recently, his years of abstract painting practice with unique brush strokes--while subtle--undoubtedly can be seen in his portrait paintings, pushing his work towards idealistic view of the world.
His latest drawings are posted on instagram. If you have enjoyed browsing my work, please "follow" @JeSoundkeepers If you would like to inquire about his work, please complete this contact form. Thank you!
