Daniel de Jesus

Daniel de Jesús is a painter, composer, and songwriter versed in the worlds of visual & sonic tapestries.

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 styling 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.

At Taller, de Jesús is the manager of the Youth Artist Program for high-school age artists.
