Cameron Jenkins, 24, from Farmington, Michigan, has enjoyed creating art since his early elementary school days, but it wasn’t until college that he started taking art seriously. Everyday struggles and joys motivated him to create series that incorporate elements of illustrative forms, surrealistic concepts and metaphorical symbolism inspired by love, music, and nostalgia. He uses a variety of techniques including drawing, painting, graphic design, video and music to document human experiences; viewers feel empowered by the narratives attached to each piece. This artist believes that self-expression through creation has therapeutic value for those who are healing or seeking a deeper understanding of themselves. For Jenkins, part of the satisfaction of making art is meeting new people and sharing in their experiences. He studied art at the Kendall College of Art and Design at Ferris State University and graphic design at Wayne State University. Jenkins shares an equal passion for music and often “mentally combines” tracks and topics to inspire new pieces. His work was first recognized in 2013 in NAACP’s National ACT-SO Competition placing first in sculpture for his ability to capture profound narratives through unique visuals. He would go on to showcase in many exhibitions around Michigan and New York. Cameron has also collaborated on murals within the Metro Detroit area, working with organizations such as Bagger Dave’s Tavern and providing graphic visuals for automotive supplier Thyssenkrupp. Jenkins has also connected with a wide variety of musicians such as Ab-Soul, Dawn Richard, Legacy and SZA. Most recently his work was displayed in New York’s Bortolami Gallery during the 2020 Visual Aids Postcards From the Edge Exhibition.
