Unable to reveal his true identity for security reasons, "Jayson Bimber" sunburns easily and is an avid painter of pet portraits. He also really likes hot dogs.
Jayson began his art education at the Edinboro University of Pennsylvania where he majored in Photography and Graphic Design and minored in printmaking. He then received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology in photography. His image making practice employs digitally collaging and manipulating appropriated imagery from magazines, weekly advertisements, and found internet photographs to comment on representation in the media, art history, and the role of the contemporary image maker. He has a strong interest in the imaging of celebrities and pop culture.
Jayson has spent the last several years working as a Digital Imaging Specialist specializing in retouching, digital compositing, and fine art printing for artists and advertising agencies in Chicago, IL. He frequently notes that if he had to go back and do it all over again, he would be a Harlem Globetrotter, specializing in spinning the ball on his finger and his greatest regret in life is that he cannot dunk.
