Jax Jackson is a freelance artist based in Charlotte, NC. Jax experiments with many art forms but primarily focuses on canvas paintings. His canvas pieces are purely abstract and use geometric forms to symbolize his unique perspective on life. Jax dabbles in the art form he calls "Salvage Restoration" which he says is taking old, forgotten materials and turning them into art pieces. This art form is somewhat like his mantra, because his belief is that anything salvaged can be turned into art.
Jax is a University of North Carolina - Charlotte graduate with a bachelors degree in Social Work. Once an employee of Charlotte-Mecklenburg School systems, Jax has experience with teaching school-aged children, in addition to the special education population. Currently, Jax is an independently contracted art instructor, in which he models strength-based practices in his approach. In the future, he plans to combine his social work skills with artwork and open up art schools for children in the Charlotte area.
In this way, he hopes to turn Charlotte into a hub for all forms of abstract art. "Art is my way out of societal restraints, and the children I teach will soon discover their escapes as well."
As a reflection of his passion for social justice, Jax founded a non-profit organization in Charlotte, NC. In his leisure, he spends time working with youth who reside in his community and surrounding areas. Solely to educate and encourage them to become positive role models within their families and communities through mentor ship, outreach, and commitment.
Jax faithfully donates a percentage of his earnings from his artwork sales to help fund the organization.
"Art cannot be criticized because every mistake is a new creation."
