homiey Summer Art Show
Sunday, August 11th, 3pm to 7pm
Jermaine Dante’ Burse is a prolific self taught artist who began drawing impressive black & white sketches on almost any surface he could find when he was three years old. Gradually, the sketches of cartoon characters, super-heroes and abstracts became more sophisticated and intricate as Jermaine added shading and color to his work.
Jermaine began to study art of the great master’s as well as 20th century artists, DuChamp, Picasso, Jean-Michele Basqiuat and pop artist Andy Warhol. “Everything you can imagine is real,” wrote Pablo Picasso and Jermaine’s work is the epitome of that philosophy.
Over the past 5 years, his art has evolved to a spontaneous realism genre that cannot be easily categorized but it is certainly recognized as a “Maine’ original with his unique depictions of figures such as NBA star Kevin Durant, Brand Ferrari, Marilyn Monroe and Stephen Curry.
He is also a socially charged artist with a few series touching on topics such as Homelessness, No Middle Cla$$, Health-Care reform and going after your dreams. He also accepts commissioned art from clients who seek the “Maine” touch for portraits of their favorite icons, families and friends.
Jermaine’s art is on display at various San Francisco art shows, galleries and wineries. Jermaine has broadened his exposure by attending and showing work at Art Basel in Florida, Kaaboo Music Festival in Del Mar, California, and a plethora of foundational dinners where professional athletes and celebrities have attended and purchased Jermaine’s art.
Jermaine is an active participant with Doctors Without Borders, Build a Heart Foundation, Mentis Mental Health as well as Ferrari Sacramento Chapter, where he has helped raise tens of thousands of dollars towards those organizations using his art.
The sky's the limit and his brand continues to grow, so does his personal expectations to be the best version of himself in everything that he set his mind to. What is left to achieve for this artist that has never allowed boundaries to define the scope of his work or his dreams. Only time will tell.
