If you don't see me in a while,
Thank you for the smile,
Talking 'Bout and old friend.
Now April's turning to May
Jason Sandberg, born in Minneapolis in 1971, discovered the artwork
of Jacob Kurtzberg in 1977 and soon acquired a love of drawing. He
received a Scholastic Art Award before studying History and Studio Arts at
the University of Minnesota from 1989 to 1993. Sandberg has had
several exhibits in Minnesota and his drawings and paintings were published
in various national indy art magazines throughout the 1990s.
PREVIEWS magazine described his Pop Art as "base alternative art on
mescaline." Critic and historian Scott McCloud classified his art as
"uncategorizable," and Alternative Press Review described him as a talented artist who
defies expectations. Sandberg specializes in acrylic painting and his work has been purchased by
collectors in Europe and Asia. A one man
exhibit of his realist paintings was held in Manhattan in September of 2004.
Sandberg's work has appeared in PREVIEWS, NEW YORK QUICK GUIDE, JUPITER and NEW
ART INTERNATIONAL. His primary influences are J.M.W. Turner and Edward Hopper.
