Artist Statement 

I was sent here to tell stories. Traditionally my medium may have been words or incantation. In the now I have my brushes, aerosol cans and whatever else I can use to visually relay the many images and messages that are sent to me. My work is a peak into my mind and I deal in codified synapses and coagulated liquid pigments

I was born with my eyes open so I’ve seen a lot. I have watched the co-modification and debasement of ancient precepts. Magic and incantation have been replaced by the commercialization of the sacred. I am a master visual technician with innumerable stories to tell. Let me know when you’re ready to see one.

[My] paintings depict beings that are triumphantly defiant with raw emotion that at times draw from youthful expression. They capture the universal essence of the human condition through an energetic portrayal of urban characters. The work comes about spontaneously, utilizing a vast aerie of mediums such as woods, found objects, spray paint, coffee and tea. I construct multi-layered, textured environments easily likened to the complexities of contemporary urban life.

Artist Statement

This video takes you inside Bruce B. Jefferson journey inside the City of Chicago 22 years as a full-time artist.

I made this footage raw because I wanted it to be as close to real, as possible - with imperfection comes a lot of beauty. My artwork is in the collections of many throughout the World. 

I could provide you with a well polished, 'slicked-over,' bio about me and my career as an artist, but I'm not going to you have seen many times over.

Some things have to build and be real. I have a life and I live life - pushing it to its limits! 

For those of you who wish to see my new creations that I produced, email me I invite you to look at this twenty-six (26) minute video, enjoy all of the art forms and then tell those you know about the video and where you saw it.

This video must be seen globally, encourage your friends to visit the sites where it is shown and share the link - don't stop, until they do see this video titled, Museum Detours!
