Jacob Everett is a London born Brighton based portrait artist. He produces large-scale portraits using an intricate technique of overlapping elliptical marks, which gradually build to represent the subtle contours of the face. In common with digital images, his works, close up, appear as thousands of tiny ‘pixels’. When viewed from a distance they reveal the subtleties and nuances of individual character. In February 2012 Jacob began a series of portraits of Bradford’s homeless. It was inspired by a fundraiser I was involved with for ‘Inn Churches’, a charity providing shelter for the homeless during the winter months. You can visit Jacob’s website or follow his Tumblr for more information and work.
