Works by Jason Egitto is featured in the Biblio Gallery on the 4th floor of Bird Library from January 19 to mid-February, 2013. Egitto, a VPA graduate student majoring in computer art, holds two B.F.A.’s in computer animation and illustration with a minor in fine arts.
In describing his work, Egitto says, “My career as an illustrator and cartoonist exerts an undeniable influence on my subject matter, as well as my technique. I’m deeply concerned about the cultural, ecological, spiritual, and political dystopia we have created, and some of my works address these issues, often with ambiguous metaphors. Each subject carries its own emotions, concepts, and definitions. I react to those elements, and that in turn affects my style. My purpose is to convey the human experience, and in particular, the inspiration of challenges through adversity. It’s about being connected to the world, and attempting to make some sense of it through the visual arts.”
