Jerel Ferguson was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. Living in Philadelphia, Jerel developed a passion of sketching. First it began as doodling while sitting in the classroom. This passion later developed into mixing of various types of paint. He is a self-taught artist, who specializes in mixed media art.
What drives Jerel's vision is based on emotion. The canvas paintings convey messages of liberation, frustration and social conflicts that are often difficult to articulate. Art represents an opportunity of expression, a voice if you will. He is not a person of many words but his paintings have much to say for themselves.
