The Rotten Lemon of Enlightenment


Jason's ugly mug

Got my work face on. Maybe that's why I never get to meet the clients...

Jason Dirstein

I have always been drawn to the visual arts, some of my earliest memories are of drawing. Wasn’t until year 5 in primary school that I experienced my first dedicated art class. It was during these weekly classes I realised I became aware that I had a natural talent for it. In high school I immersed myself in it and was rewarded with awards in year 11 and 12 as well as being selected for the Year 12 Perspectives exhibition held in the Art Gallery of WA. Then I was thrown into the real world, floundering about not sure what I wanted to do with my life and even if the visual arts would be a significant part of it. Fast forward seven plus years and a career in the oil industry I came to the realisation that a life without art wasn’t a life at all. So here I am at university reigniting a long forgotten passion and chasing a childhood dream.

As I am still and hopefully always will be a student of the visual arts my artwork is forever changing. As I learn and grow so does my art. Right now it is about exploring mediums, styles and the technical skills of the domain. Hopefully my work reflects this.

Mission Statement
To enjoy what I do and turn it into a career.
To always keep learning.
To push myself.
To keep my passion/fire burning.
To do it with a smile on my face.
