Jason Shawn Alexander

Artist, Jason Shawn Alexander has just opened his new solo show at the Corey Helford Gallery last week and it looked amazing.

Originally a painter and draftsman from Tennessee, he currently resides and works in Los Angeles, California.

Though modern in its subject matter, Alexander’s work pulls, still, from the vulnerability, fear, and underlying strength that come from his rural upbringing.

Much like good Delta Blues, his work maintains a sense of pain and passion which steers Alexander away from the standard “isms” that, in his words, “tend to muddy up what’s really important”. The result is something heartbreakingly genuine.

Check out his show at the Corey Helford Gallery...
