Jesse Best (b.1977, Butler, PA) is a contemporary American artist and designer living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His style reflects a material driven process with a focus on acrylic, spray paint, wood and resin. Analog Holiday features new work created over the past three years and on view for the first time at SPACE Gallery.

Artist Statement

Analog Holiday is the full collection of work I’ve created over the past 3 years. During this period I was greatly inspired by the technology and design approach of the midcentury industrial boom. It was an optimistic time when form wildly came before function and beautiful contemporary design was integrated into even basic household items. This work is intentionally nonpolitical and my attempt to bring audiences into a space of pleasure and escape. That said, the raw and painful aspects of today's reality inevitably dripped between the layers of color and gloss.

Jesse T. Best: Analog Holiday is presented by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
