Dessie Jackson was born in Lancaster, PA and received her BFA from Tyler School of Art, in Philadelphia. Jackson’s work explores the performance of femininity through painting, drawing, video and collage. Jackson illustrates both the beautiful and grotesque in her augmented portraits, as they often dance through these dualities simultaneously, while wearing lipstick. Most recently, she created seven stop-motion lyric videos for Halsey’s newest album, ‘Manic.’ Her work has appeared in Thrasher, NYLON, Playboy, SHOWstudios, VICE, GQ, Paper Mag, VFILES, Complex, and more. She has received The Vivian Rosenberg Award, Alec Abels Memorial Award in Painting, Nominee for Artist of the Year by Rad Girls, and #30under30 Philadelphia’s Most Inspiring Women. Dessie is currently living and working in Los Angeles.
This artwork is currently featured in "Art4Equality x Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness" group exhibition at The Untitled Space.
