Artists That Inspire

Jessica Hess

Jessica Hess is an artist’s I couldn’t find out much about which suggests she’s not that we’ll known yet along with Susan Trudinger, but both are still alive today. Here is what Wikipedia currently says about her very interesting work.

Jessica Hess (born 1981) is an American contemporary artist, based in Oakland, California. She is internationally known for her realist paintings, which often feature either a landscape, buildings in a state of decay, street art, and/or graffiti. Her paintings are of urban environment and fame and confirm the art of graffiti through fine lenses of oil paintings on canvas and gouache on paper.

Hess attended Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence, Rhode Island and graduated with a BFA degree in Illustration in 2003. Her work was featured in the juried international art magazine, New American Paintings, issue number 74 (February/March 2008). Hess’ artwork was used as an illustration for Harper’s Magazine (April 2009).
