Jesus D. Torres b.1995 is an artist living and working in New York, Mexico City, and soon to be relocated to Los Angeles. In 2019 he earned a B.F.A. in sculpture from SUNY at Purchase College and was a resident at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He developed his relationship with his practice at a young age by working for his father in their family masonry business. Torres gets inspiration from the intense labor implemented by a person in maintaining and transforming the landscape of someone else's home. He uses materials directly taken from job locations and fuses aspects of lived experiences into the artwork. Torres' work unfolds stories of familial history through cultural idioms and semiotics. The various layers of Torres' work raise questions of socioeconomic mobility, ethics of labor, and the living circumstances of future progeny.

As a French art director and designer, I like to combine old-school processes such as painting and hand drawing with modern digital tools. After five years studying fine arts in Paris, I started to forged a successful career as a communication consultant for up-and-coming European fashion designers as well as leading couture houses. In 2004, I moved to London to develop my illustration work, creating imagery for major publications spanning both the independent & mainstream press (eg. Vogue, ELLE, Vanity Fair, Interview, Nylon and Muse). In addition, my work has been published in publications including Taschen, Gestalten, Victionary, and featured in exhibitions and installations in exhibitions in London, Paris, Los Angeles and Barcelona. It was during my time in London that I also conceived and launched the Forget Me Not studio.
