Jason Duval’s paintings employ letters, numerals, lines and shapes in layered spaces, much as the vestiges of words, signs, paint, and material of a constantly changing urban environment gathers in the eye during a daily walk in the city. Educated at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and School of Visual Arts. Shows in the New Museum. MFA, Fine Art Heskin Contemporary 2009 and Dennis Dawson Spring Break Art Show 2016. Next to his artistic career, he was director of exhibitions for Michael Werner in New York and Berlin.
