Jerry Blank’s main body of work are paintings featuring Western life, southwest, desert, rodeo, cowboys, and Western movie tributes. Past work featured jazz legends, rock and roll giants, sports greats, and celebrated stars of the entertainment world. His work is mostly in an impressionist montage style that captures images from the subject’s career, life, and surroundings. In addition, Jerry has an extensive suite of paintings celebrating European and American cityscapes and landscapes.
Spending most of his early career as a graphic designer and art director in the San Francisco Bay Area, Jerry moved to Paris in 2000 to paint, travel, speak French, and drink a little wine. Returning with fifty-one paintings after a year, his fine art career was launched. Now in full stride, the journey continues.
