Jason Farley: One Chicago Artist You Should Know About RIGHT NOW

Jason Farley: One Chicago Artist You Should Know About RIGHT NOW

The turning point, the aha moment, that pivotal instant when years of time spent in a studio begin to pay off: many artists never cross paths with that experience. For Chicago based creative Jason Farley, that was the culmination of an arduous work ethic and a desire to push his art further. 

 

"I Always Challenge Myself With Every Project I Come Up With"

 

To pay for his education at the American Academy of Art, Farley enlisted in a four year tour in the military. He later realized both worlds could be merged together in a pursuit for artistic excellence. Adding the discipline he acquired during his enlistment to his collegiate background in oil painting and illustration, Jason steadily created momentum as an independent artist. With each passing year he ventured further into his style, until discovering techniques that inspired a new collection of work.

After making the decision in 2016 to create art on a regular basis, Farley juggled commission work for clientele while experimenting with his personal methodology. He worked diligently year after year; just recently compositions unlike anything prior began to appear in his studio. The Chicagoan took inspiration from contemporary surrealism, then added a world of beauty, luxury, and raw human emotion. This was the work he had been longing to create.

With a previous portfolio rooted in a pop culture theme, the artist transitioned his newest series to include nuances of personal experience. While visiting the West Coast, Jason took note of the Griffith Observatory, local plant life, and a family member skateboarding in Laguna, to later be revisited in works like the one above. 

 

 Closing Thoughts

To reach the level of esteemed talent one has to temporarily throw away financial goals and become conscientiously involved with mix of progression, curiosity, and creation. In this case, years of formal training, military service, and the pursuit of artistic excellence have enabled Jason Farley to prominently entered the art market and we're eager to see what he comes up with next.
