Visual artist Jesse Auersalo's images are often dark and intimidating
but the attention to detail and meticulous rendering contrast to
create strong iconic imagery that can shock and fascinate in equal
measure. Jesse compares his work to cooking a sweat and sour dish or
discovering salt liquorice in a bag full or marshmallows. It's the
dynamic that gives the bitter or sweet its potency. He's fascinated by
redefining the mundane and finds continual inspiration in the
disposable things he surrounds himself with.
Commercially, he's collaborated with Colette, Sony Music, Microsoft,
Converse, 3M, Nokia and Playboy and exhibited in museums and galleries
in New York, London, Paris, Shanghai, Berlin and Tokyo.
