Jesse Hale (b. 1984) is a multi-disciplinary artist from Tyler, Texas, based in Nashville, Tennessee since 2003. Having worked as a violinist and electronic musician for most of his career, he began incorporating broader forms of artistic expression in his late twenties, including drawing, painting, photography, print, installation, and experimental media. Though primarily self-taught, he credits much of his formative artistic education to his father, an independent commercial illustrator. Since 2012, Hale has garnered attention through local galleries, pop-up exhibitions, and DIY initiatives within the growing Nashville art community. Notable exhibitions include 21c Museum Hotel in Nashville, PANTONE UV X MOCAN, O’More College of Design, and Fort Houston.
