Visiting Artist

False Democracy Handcuffed by Jesse Howard, 2015, Charcoal, Acrylic Paint, 35 x 43 in.

Born on Chicago's West Side, Howard returned to his old neighborhood to record images of the people there. The objective of his portraits is not simply to create a likeness, but to show the stress and pressure in the physical makeup of his subjects.
Howard received his bachelor's degree from Ball State University, majoring in commercial art and minoring in business administration. He has exhibited at the Chicago Cultural Center and numerous galleries and colleges throughout the Chicago area. He recently took first place in the Beloit Vicinity Exhibition and was awarded a solo exhibition for June 2016.
