Matt Jacob enjoys bending neon, making comics, working with glass in any context, and adding ironic fourth items to lists. For him, art shows others how you see the world, and his own art often explores themes of community, identity, and change. Despite his claims that “the mid-west coast is the best coast” (UW-Madison BFA 2018), he currently lives in Norfolk, VA, where he’s an instructor and local neon wizard at the Chrysler Museum of Art Glass Studio. He has also worked at Starworks, NC as a glass intern, at Pilchuck Glass School as seasonal staff, and The Governor’s School For The Arts (Norfolk, VA) as an instructor for high school glass and comics classes.
