Jeremy Stroup is an artist based in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He graduated from IPFW in 2014 with a BFA in studio art, specializing in sculpture.
Currently, Jeremy produces a series of large scale drawings and collages of a broad variety of subjects, with an appreciation for religious, mythological, and archetypal themes. His most recent works explore biblical and mythological stories that resonate from his past culturally. He describes the process as a meditation on a story, the symbols it contains, and the people who have kept and valued it for generations.
Jeremy's work is vivid and decorative, drawing inspiration from many different cultures. He cites a long list of sources, such as: illuminated manuscripts, Ukiyo-e woodcuts from Japan, European and Arabic architecture, modern and retro science fiction illustration, and the surrealist movement such as: Paul Klee, Rene Magritte, and Remedios Varo.
Jeremy's main focus is honing his skills as he practices his craft, allowing the process to form a style for itself.
