A jackass of all trades, Jader hurdles through time and space wielding his skills in photography, performance, film, costume design, and avant-garde makeup to envision parallel dimensions that are as disturbing as they are alluring. With its vibrant, trademark aesthetic and thought-provoking conceptual underpinnings, Jader’s work whisks the viewer off into a post-human, post-binary plane of existence and from this vantage point, invites a more thorough understanding of the subjective present. Radically queer and unapologetically candid, Jader is the virus in the simulation.
Jader recently debuted new work for Art Basel Miami Beach (with his collective, Toxic Waste Face) and was recently spotlit by KQED Arts and Broadly by Vice as a vanguard artist on the rise.
The artist splits his time between San Francisco and Los Angeles, CA.
Nurturing both a fine art and commercial practice, I do accept paid commission, collaboration, and/or art direction gigs. Need some slick album artwork for your music project? Full-fantasy makeup for your editorial spread? What about otherworldly costumes for your theatre piece? Whatever the project may be, if you are interested in any of my services - photography, makeup, art direction, music videos, costume design, performance - please send over a description of the project, your allocated budget, and any reference materials and let’s make some magic!
Interested in ordering a photographic print from my archives? Curious about booking me (or my collective Toxic Waste Face) to perform at your space or institution? Drop me a line and let’s discuss what’s possible!
