de Jesús’ visual art follows medieval and baroque archetypes of figurative painting, yet infuses it with a brilliance of color and application that is melodic. The themes they explore are often based on Latin American baroque stylings with a penchant for Pre-Raphaelite yearnings of forlorn faces and frail bodies, portraying an iconic melancholy both beautiful and tragic. de Jesús is often inspired by historical figures like mystics, scholars, artists, and martyrs; all of these are his muses.

de Jesús holds a degree in fine art form the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and has exhibited their work throughout the Mid Atlantic region. They have published several books where they write about artistic processes and inspiration.
