Jesse Wright is an interdisciplinary artist based in Newark, New Jersey. He received his BA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City and Middlesex Polytechnic in England.

His artworks serve as tableaux in an ongoing poetic meditation on scripture. His visual approach to this content references his blended Jamaican American heritage. Through mixed media paintings, often involving reclaimed materials from the streets, he recalls both urban textures as well as the various materials used across Jamaica’s landscape. The inclusion of language is informed in celebration of the hand painted signs and artistry of noted figures from the island such as “Nurse” and K.L. Rankine. The work is frequently layered and fragmented, juxtaposing figures with abstract, or gestural elements.
