Artist Statement

Jacob Alexander Figueroa Jacob Alexander Figueroa

I am a visual multi-media artist who incorporates literary works, futuristic landscapes, dream imagery and symbolism in my work. My aim is to create decorations with messages of hope to give back color to the people who color my life. I am a gypsy, an insatiable explorer whose work vibrates with every person, idea, frustration and challenge. Art is a luxury. It provokes the sub-conscience, asks questions, defies convention and stirs the senses in ways other luxuries cannot. I dedicate my craft to all generations, those who created before me and those that will outlive me and impact the future by launching this world into an apocalypse of inventions and revolution.
