Donald Jackson (b.1972) is a contemporary American artist living and working in Chicago, Illinois. Each completed work is as much a psychological undertaking as it is an artistic journey. Donald is continuously studying the development of the tensions produced between color, line, and form and each space is defined by their universal values. He believes balance comes about when all environmental elements work in concert with one another. Jackson’s work attempts to bridge the gap between the objective and the subjective. The images created are secondary to the tensions that they produce. Donald Jackson Studio serves as the classroom for Color Wheel Studio, a children’s fine arts program located in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago. Opened in 2010 in response to the lack of quality arts education in our public schools, Jackson inspires young minds through the unique teachings of his own fine arts background.
