Jessica Hess Bio
About The Artist
San Francisco-based artist Jessica Hess is a photorealistic landscape painter. Her depictions of the urban environment both celebrate and validate the art of graffiti through a fine art lens of oil paintings on canvas and gauche on paper. A graduate of RISD (Rhode Island School of Design), Hess is a recipient of the Trent Burleson Painting Prize, the Faber Birren National Color Award and the Stamford Art Association Award for Excellence.
Hess has been exhibiting nationally since 2002 and has shown at Subliminal Projects and Thinkspace in Los Angeles, White Walls in San Francisco, Yves Laroche in Montreal, and Ferrin Gallery and Geoffrey Young Gallery in Massachusetts to name a few. Her work has been featured in print publications including New American Paintings (Northeast #74) and Harper's (April 2009).
