These are not just pretty pictures. These are not colorful portraits. Jason Pearson has created art for many notables including David Bowie, Trent Reznor, Mel Gibson, Gil Scott-Heron and Aphex Twin. In the fashion industry, his design has involved work with Cosmopolitan magazine, Levi Strauss, Tommy Hilfiger, and Calvin Klein.

Pearson is the co-founder of Blender Magazine which was acquired by Felix Dennis and Maxim magazine. Jason has received numerous artistic awards and his work has been published in more than 30 books. New York Magazine recognized Pearson as one of their “digital visionaries.” He was also named to the Samsung Brain Trust.

With paintings shown in Chicago, San Francisco, Kansas City, and New York, Pearson’s work is also featured in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian and Victoria and Albert Museum.

Pearson works actively with strategic NGOs on human rights and poverty issues—providing poignant inspiration for his creative work. He’s currently engaged in a stunning initiative to foster and create underground ideas and visuals in selected nations that are unfriendly towards the United States.
