Jared Freschman (b. 1996) is a Brooklyn based artist originally born in Delaware. Growing up in a religious Jewish family, Freschman struggled with expressing himself as a queer individual as he had to constantly grapple with his community’s traditional values. He studied at a Jewish day school as a kid and was intrigued by ancient Middle Eastern artwork. Throughout his life, he has used his work as a “getaway” from his stressful reality. Eventually, Freschman left Delaware to study Fine Art, Illustration and Design at Pratt Institute. Within his first year of his studies, Freschman lost his father to Pancreatic Cancer. Unsure if he should continue his time in NYC, he decided to stay and focus on his artistic practice. During his time at art school, Freschman also studied abroad in Jerusalem, Israel at Bezalel School of Art and Design. He describes his experience of living in Jerusalem as a pivotal moment for his art as he was inspired by the collision of his Jewish Culture and his queer identity. Abroad, he was involved in the underground queer scene in Jerusalem, while also touring religious and historic sites around Israel and Jordan. Arriving back in the United States, Freschman faced a lot of trauma from his time in the Middle East, which influenced him to find healing in practices such as Buddhism. He currently shows work around NYC, along with galleries around the world.
