JEFF WACK / artist
A native of Southern California, Jeff Wack lives and works in Los Angeles. He attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.
Wack is an internationally acclaimed artist, specializing in a unique blend of photography and digital painting. His figurative works are an idealized vision of feminine beauty and timelessness. The ethereal magic of his pieces has enthralled numerous collectors, including the likes of Hugh Hefner (Publisher, Playboy), Larry Flynt (Publisher, Hustler), Bunny Yeager (Photographer and former pin-up model), Dr. Naomi Wilzig (Director, World Erotic Art Museum), James Franco (Actor and writer), who commissioned an exclusive series titled "Goddess".
Wack elegantly uses a utopian natural world as a setting, masterfully using rich colors and light to illustrate his views of the cosmos. "I very much see the connection between earth and the female in all their manifestations, creator of life, nurturing spirit and object of beauty and desire," says Wack.
Of the many accolades given to him and his work, Wack is the recipient of the 2009 XTO Award, and has been a featured artist at the Farmani Gallery in New York City.
