Jacob Farkas was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating from The City University of New York, he opened his own art studio. Jacob divides his time between painting in his studio and painting outdoors on location. Jacob Farkas' use of color, texture and shape often evokes an imagery of architectural and urban motifs. By combining and layering various mediums, he brings about a sense of history and discovery through his process oriented technique. While not limiting himself to the urban references, he draws upon his travels to expose other imagery in his work. One can also find a sense of primitive influence in his mark making. This combined with his spontaneous gestural approach to the surface introduces another dimension to his work. The work of Jacob Farkas can be found in numerous private collections, as well as, corporate public collections.
Jacob create paintings that are atmospheric with interesting shapes - almost California Art style. He lets colours run into each other creating a unique underpainting and telling his story through a detailed focal area. He want you to be able to see something new every time you look at his paintings.
Over the last 15 years I have developed my own distinctive painting style.
