Wasalu Jaco

Wasalu Jaco, also known as the musician Lupe Fiasco, is a widely-respected, multi-talented creative impresario. Actioning in concert with his Grammy-Award-Winning Music Career, Jaco has been developing his studio painting persona since 2013. As a way to offer creativity that takes up actual "physical space", he has produced myriad oil paintings, and mixed-material collages that express his inner moods, rhythms, and conversations. In 2015, Jaco exhibited his first full body of work at the Soho House in Chicago; the show, titled "Bound", sold out entirely. Additionally, Jaco used one of his own paintings as the cover art for his last studio album on Atlantic Records: Tetsuo & Youth.
