The work of Jacob Van Loon is eye-catching for a number of reasons. It plays between organic and geometric elements to provide people with a visual performance that feels as though it is full of movement even though they are two dimensional creations. Whether using paint, pencils and other mixed-media materials, Jacob Van Loon knows exactly how to create thought-provoking scenes that will captivate anyone.

Based in DeKalb, Illinois, Jacob Van Loon draws inspiration from cartography, scientific illustrations, graphic design and architecture. Oftentimes full of abstraction, his work of arts speak to his audience in different ways. Incredibly subjective, the work can be full of color in one instance and almost completely devoid of vibrancy in the next. Versatile and imaginative, Jacob Van Loon is a talent to watch.
