Jacob Pierzchala is a Michigan-based artist whose primary work is situated in the digital realm. He received an MFA in Studio Art from Bowling Green State University in 2012, and currently works as a web developer at Gud Marketing. For the last several years, he has taught at Grand Valley State University, and worked with the digital artist, Erwin Redl.
Jacob's artwork aims to explore and criticize the often binary nature of worldviews. He sees art as the continuation of an ongoing dialogue, and in light of this, his most notable influences are the writings of C.S. Lewis, the photography of Paul Strand, the socio-technological theory of Ray Kurzweil, and hypermedia Poetry of Jason Nelson.
