About the Artist
He studied design at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh from 1988-1990. After years of moving from city to city and learning more and more about the art form, Jerry settled for a bit in the San Francisco Bay area and began learning techniques and styles from the Bay Area’s finest. These teachings would mark the beginning of the style that Jerry has become known for as a graffiti writer. He also became the leader of the Transcend Collective an “abstract graffiti” crew that became infamous for its experimental, hybrid aesthetic take on graffiti and its options for painting styles. Highly influential nationwide, his style has evolved from well-executed standard graffiti fare to high-end graphic art.
Heavily influenced by Deconstructivist architecture, Jerry Inscoe dissects and reassembles three-dimensional space within an elegant framework of smooth lines, soaring arcs and sharp angles. Tone-on-tone colors and neutrals exist in crisp definition, often set against a background of smooth wood grain. Today, Jerry continues to move in a progressive direction with his mural work while giving way to canvas and wood as his surface for gallery pieces, showing his work in DC, LA, San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Montreal, London, Hamburg, Amsterdam, Osaka and Tokyo. He’s been commissioned to create work for companies like Burton, Osiris and Nike and been featured in several magazines and books over the last few years.Currently, he lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
He has designed typefaces, worked for big corporations like Nordstrom, is obsessed with high-end cycling, and raising a family. He also has been blessed with many commercial assignments such as snowboard design for Burton, design work included in the original Nike Presto launch campaign and his on-going passion with tattoo design.
