Brian Jerome was born in York, Pennsylvania, June 12, 1990. He grew up next to a corn farm in Dallastown, Pennsylvania. Jerome received his BFA from Tyler School of Art with a focus in printmaking in 2013. He was accepted into The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts for his MFA on scholarship in 2015 where he began to focus on multimedia, abstract painting. At the Academy, he engaged in critical aesthetic theory and art history, culminating his studies into his thesis, On Honesty and Intention: The Works of Mark Rothko and Cy Twombly.
During his graduate studies, his work began drawing heavy influence from a curiosity of language and linguistics, emotive expression, and the symbology of Carl Jung. His work has attempted to make a bridge between subjective, internal dialogue and the failure of conventional language to express the fullness of the human condition.
Jerome currently lives and works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania since 2008. He is an avid and skilled cook, having worked as a professional cook for over ten years.
