Jesse Fillingham’s work brings so many of my favorite visual art elements together it’s hard to know where to start. His style combines highly detailed characters, such as the eerie figures or hands which appear in his most recent pieces, with a minimal composition full of striking geometrical shapes. I love how reminiscent some parts of his work are to a lot of contemporary graphic design, and yet other parts take a nice distance from this through use of non-digital materials.
“Two things that seem to be present in a lot of my work is an emphasis on nature/natural phenomena and mythology/fantasy. Rendering is also a process that I put myself through in most of my work, which I find to be extremely rewarding.”
