JON JACOBSEN

Jon is a chilean artist and photographer. Self-taught, he began creating conceptual self-portraits at the age of 15 in his hometown, Quintero, Chile. His work is characterized by the creation of graphic narrative pieces using symbolism and surreal, using different techniques, such as photomanipulations, .GIF animations and illustrations.

In 2014 he opened his first solo exhibition entitled "Mapas". That same year, his series "The Present" was named by The Creators Project as one of the most important projects of the moment. In turn, he was a finalist at "Motion Photography" organized by Saatchi Gallery. In early 2016, his latest project "Insula" was one of the 10 world selections to be part of ShowStudio Fashion Film Festival.

His work has been widely exhibited in Chile and European countries; and it has been recognized by magazines such as WIRED, Vogue.it, ShowStudio, Dazed & Confused, i-D and The Yale Globalist, Yale University.
