Bio

My name is Jacob Pierzchala. I was born and raised in West Michigan, a place I continue to consider my home despite the area's harsh winters. In 2010 I received my BA in Communications Studies from Grand Valley State University, and I've recently begun working towards an MFA in Studio Art at Bowling Green State University.

Art is a large part of my life, as a pastime, profession, and means of expression. My personal work is situated primarily in the digital realm, integrating the mediums of photography, animation, and text from a standpoint that art should engage the viewer. I understand art as the continuation of an ongoing dialogue, and in light of this, my most notable influences are the writings of C.S. Lewis, the photography of Duane Michaels, the socio-technological theory of Ray Kurzweil, and various films created by the wonderful people at Pixar Animation Studios.
