While living in New York City, Pearson created album art and then editorial fashion and music magazine visuals—all powerfully represented in his art. Over the last five years however, he has worked on campaigns and documentaries addressing the global issues of modern slavery, aids + orphan epidemics, hunger and human rights.

Now living in Southern California, Pearson finds himself strangely interconnected to the urgent crises of the outside world, yet encased in a bubble of comfort and luxury.
Here is the irony! Pearson lives next door to "the happiest place on earth" while articulating stories of the saddest places on earth.

This uncomfortable dichotomy gives voice to art that spotlights the allurement of beauty—although photoshopped and artificial—while concurrently broadcasting an uneasy distortion of the uncanny valley.In each piece there is something wrong.

Pearson's series in oil, "The Problem With the World Is Me," is based on G.K. Chesterton's authentic confession when The Times of London asked noted authors and thinkers to answer the weighty question, "What's wrong with the world?" His fork-in-the-road response:

"Dear Sirs, I am." G.K. Chesterton

It is because the artist realizes that he has put his own selfish comfort above the survival of others, that the viewer can also enter into these issues with some hope and not damnation.
