Jason Wallerstein (b.1977-) was born in South Florida. As a child, he played in the swamps along with snakes, frogs, turtles, and spiders, and he appreciates the flora and fauna that make up the South. Jason began his fine arts studies at the prestigious, Dreyfoos High School of the Arts in Palm Beach, Florida. He furthered his art education with a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).
Jason Wallerstein’s art is quite colorful and is heavily influenced by animals and nature. Themes include flowers, plants, and life experiences. Jason has a love for printmaking and is constantly painting; focusing on his surrounding locale and adventurous encounters.
Jason Wallerstein and his family moved to Austin in March, 2020. He quickly fell in love with the Texas Hill Country and its' critters and all of the amazing things (mythical and real) that Central Texas has to offer. From watching the Austin bats flee downtown bridges in search of food at dusk, armadillos in psychedelic party attire, to wild turkeys gobbling aggressively, Jason Wallerstein's artwork is meant to share his love for all things Texas and the outdoors.
