Jacob Lovett is an American artist, most notably known for his work in single subject realism oil paintings. Today he works primarily in oil paints, using old masters’ techniques in a minimalistic approach. This allows him to bring attention to detail to the subject on canvas through a modern lens while achieving aesthetically clean, yet strikingly realistic compositions.
Lovett was born and raised in Fort Worth, TX. Growing up he was always encouraged by his mother to pursue his artistic interests but never fully committed to his craft. After high school he attended the University of Mississippi and received a degree in marketing and returned home to pursue a career in business.
During the spring of 2018 he discovered his previously unknown talent for painting after a close friend of his asked him 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. This moment led him to seek out further instruction and he went on to study under Laert Aleksi Xhaferi of Studio Sabka.
After a few hours of weekly instruction over the past 3 years, Lovett has turned his hobby into a full time profession. In 2021, Lovett became a full time artist while simultaneously opening his own shared studio space, Muse.
Muse provides local creatives with affordable hourly and monthly leasing options to pursue their artistic endeavors.
As Lovett takes on this new business venture he continues to expand his art portfolio on a daily basis.
