BIOGRAPHY

Contemporary artist Jack Moore was born in 1991 Hartford Connecticut and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Moore studied political science and history at the University of Vermont. After graduating and working in education, he moved to New York City to pursue art.

The artist’s abstract characters reflect a world full of arbitrary wonder, simple characters that become the catalyst of conversation that is paradoxically complex. This is testament to the distinctive subjectivity and narrative the artist infuses in his work and teams with succinct technique.

Moore employs traditional and learned colour theory, choosing his colour palette with great intention so that it conveys specific emotion. It is the marriage of these selected colours and their technical application, that are foundational to the success of Moore’s work.

The artist states, “Within my work, I create surreal landscapes and characters. I’m influenced heavily by my dreams which I remember in vivid detail. My paintings express the range of human experience, most often in an urban community. Living in New York City, I witness joy and sadness every day.”

Moore has collaborated on a range of clothing and merchandise with emerging New York designers and curated the Greener Group Show also in New York featuring local young artists from various genres, mediums, and schools of thought.
