Don Jacobs (Murals & Artistic Design) | Design
Don Jacobs is a self employed artist specializing in realistic murals, faux finishes, commissioned art work and "off the wall" art projects ranging from graphic design to 3 dimensional projects to fine art. His art work can be found in private collections from California to Europe and his mural work can be seen locally in the Mississippi Governor's Mansion, The First Baptist Church, the Jackson Country Club and at the Haute Pig Restaurant in Madison, MS. He's been written up in "MISSISSIPPI" Magazine as well as other regional publications and has been the feature of Mississippi Public Broadcasting productions of "Mississippi Roads" and "Southern Expressions".
Having grown up in Brookhaven, MS, Don Jacobs left home at the age 19 for a summer job in Europe. This "Summer Job" evolved into a lengthy stay which eventually landed him at Kunstschule Westend für Grafik und Design, a reknowned art academy in Frankfurt, Germany where he received his degree in Graphic Design. After nearly a decade in Europe, Jacobs returned to his roots in the deep south in 1980 and began his career as a graphic artist. Eventually settling in Jackson, MS, as Art Director for a local TV station, he became ready for a change in 1985 and went out on his own as a full-time artist, specializing in faux finishes, murals and his own personal art.
