Jamie Emerson was born in 1991 to a family of artists. At age 19 he moved to New York City and attended classes at the Art Students League of NY where he learned to employ elements of drawing, painting, sculpture, video and performance.
His work is drawn from life, and has included the practices of public sculpture, mural painting, puppetry, street and performance art. He likes interactivity as a means of producing platforms upon which others can create. Jamie has shown work internationally in Mexico City, France, UK, Belgium and throughout NY, including Grace Exhibition Space and the Queens Museum. He lives and works in Brooklyn.
