“Arthur Jacob is an extremely versatile and talented digital artist and photographer. His work first came to my attention as the Director of the Manhattan Arts International online gallery and our panel of jurors subsequently invited him to exhibit his work on our website. We received many positive comments about his work and new followers. Since then his creativity and innovation have continued to expand. It has been a pleasure to watch him make greater contributions to the contemporary world of digital art.”
– 2015 Renee Phillips, Founder and Director, Editor-Chief, Manhattan Arts International
“Since his retirement in 2000. Arthur has dedicated his time to his craft, evolving, learning, experimenting and exploring the possibilities that the camera and computer avail to him. The results are astonishingly detailed works that exploit color and imagery in an intelligent and beautiful way, resulting in pieces that are both joyous and intriguing, graceful and potent, and possess such a popular appeal that it is almost impossible to imagine a wall that they would not beautify.”
– 2012 Tim Broughton, Gallery ArtLA, Santa Monica, CA
“Arthur Jacob tests the limits of photography, deconstructing reality in swirling patterns and a spectrum of glowing colors that render the known world mysteriously new.”
- 2006 Ed McCormack, Managing Editor, Gallery & Studio Magazine, New York, NY
As early as I can remember my sense of sight was the strongest of all five sense. As I grew older I began to do all sort of art projects but always with a sense of bold colors, shapes, and movement. In 2003 I moved to Las Vegas and while unpacking I discovered a box with a digital camera in it. Someone said to me, “Do something with it!” So I began doing portfolios for new artists in Las Vegas. Late one night, while I was touching up an image on the computer, I accidently pushed the wrong key and everything before me changed in terms of shapes and movement. I added a little bit of color and that was it, I began a new creative adventure which continues to do this day.
When people ask me about my work I like to share with them that my canvas begins as a photograph and the mouse is my brush. From that point on, my creative focus is not on the actual identity of the subject; but rather, through digital manipulation, the focus is one of exploring shapes, colors and movement that are hidden in the photograph.
I don’t record the steps taken to achieve this focus so each work is unique and new. This allows me to take a new journey of discovery with each piece I create. The focus on color, shapes and movement continue even when my work is more representational. As I tell everyone that acquires one of my works, “Enjoy the view!”
