Visionary artist Jesse Michael Newman, whose VFX work is in the permanent collections of the MoMA and Whitney, breathes life into ideas. Independent of process or canvas, his most recent projects are Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour visuals and film.

Essential to his career — the primary means through which he learns software — is his personal artwork, which provides fertile ground for inspiration. His art and career have a symbiotic relationship; with both, he continues to push visual boundaries.
