Jared FitzGerald was born in Seattle, Washington, and studied painting and classical archaeology at the University of Washington. The son of celebrated American artists James FitzGerald and Margaret Tomkins, a passion for art was fostered at an early age. He traveled extensively as a still and motion picture photographer while serving in the US Air Force and has developed a lifelong fascination with tribal arts and anthropomorphic imagery. Producing works in a variety of media, from classical ink painting to glazed ceramics, FitzGerald has developed a style of intuitive painting centering on playfully naturalistic forms and abstracted figures. Since 2007, he has maintained full-time studios in Beijing, New York and Jingdezhen.
FitzGerald’s work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Spain and China, including the National Art Museum of China, the Meridian Center in Washington D.C. and the Seattle Art Museum. He is a member of the American Research Association of Eastern and Western Arts, the China Contemporary Art Association, and the China Research Institute of Contemporary Art.
