BIO

Jacob Lovett is an American artist most notably known for his contemporary western oil paintings. Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas his work is heavily influenced by the western lifestyle and culture that has surrounded him since he was a kid. Although he does not wear the title cowboy his admiration for the ethos that they uphold to this day is what draws him to this subject matter. 

Lovett grew up drawing throughout his youth and took a few art classes during his time at The University of Mississippi but it wasn't until he graduated from Ole Miss in 2017 that he started to recognize art as more than just a hobby.

 

In the spring of 2018, Lovett was approached by a friend to paint a commission piece for their family. Never painted before, he accepted this project without any proper training, purchased the required materials and looked up "How to Paint" on YouTube. After days of work he delivered them the finished piece. That moment led him to seek out proper training and went on to study under Laert Aleksi Xhaferi of Studio Sabka.

From 2018 to 2020, Lovett would take a few hours of weekly instruction at the studio, developing the skills and confidence needed to create on his own. After being let go from his corporate job during the 2020 pandemic, Lovett decided to go all in on his craft and in 2021 Lovett became a full time artist while simultaneously opening his shared studio space, Muse.

Today, Lovett works primarily in oil paints, with a focus in contemporary western subject matter, using old masters techniques in a minimalistic approach to achieve aesthetically clean, yet strikingly realistic compositions.
