Artist Statement

Jason Tudor is an artist and designer based in Brooklyn, NY. He uses drawing, printmaking, and digital media to create intricate works on textile and paper which evoke a sense of mystique and wonder. With an aesthetic reminiscent of Japanese woodblock prints, art nouveau, surrealism, and street art, Tudor’s work depicts abstracted notions of nature, pulling patterns from the micro to the macro universe. In his artistic process, Tudor looks to nature and spirituality with his mediative drawing technique. His freeform style creates endless outcomes of interweaving shapes and motifs that grow organically to build rhythmic compositions. Continuing their evolution, he brings them into the digital realm, where repeating, layering, and mirroring multiple drawings creates unique complex arrangements of pareidolia. Microscopic cell structures, otherworldly beings, and mystical totem-esque forms fill Tudor’s art. Bouncing between the hand and digital, the drawings fuse together to create a unique world of their own. As an experienced screen printer, he also uses the medium to explore unexpected results and textures in his work. Tudor received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2010. Following his passion for textile design and patterns, he uses similar methods to develop prints for fashion, apparel, accessories, and home textiles, including wall coverings, rugs, and upholstery. His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, and art fairs, including Art Busan and Fountain Art Fair. He was also the recipient of the ISE Cultural Foundation’s Hitomi Iwasaki Award. His designs have been featured by labels including Prabal Gurung and Urban Outfitters, and at the Rubin Museum of Art store.
