Jackson has exhibited his work all over the world and received twelve fellowships from several institutions. His paintings are social commentary seen through his unique perspective. Sometimes heavy with political imagery, always laiden with a unique creative outlook, Jackson’s work is a sight to be seen. Check out more of Jackson’s work here.
After the tour, chat about your new perspectives over a drink and some tapas in the Brushmark Restaurant.
