Gem Jaxx (She/Her)
Artist and Co-Owner Saturation Gallery
Hi I am Gem Jaxx and I am a modern visual artist, who has been in living life in Las Vegas for the past 17 years. I am a self-taught artist who loves history. I am also the gallery co-owner of Saturation Gallery inside The World Famous Arts Factory downtown. I was just recently in New York City showcasing my artwork and I have been busy with projects that include Life Is Beautiful and Art Basel Miami. On my downtown I produce a local art pop up called Art Show. Look out for my billboard in Las Vegas from SaveArtSpace and Meow Wolf! I live for art!
Describe your artwork.
When you see my art, you will discover a unique style from pop culture to iconic history in an edgy fashion exploding with vibrant colors. The transformation from my digital art cut into pieces of paper pasted over canvas, wood, and reclaimed objects as the foundation. The mediums I use to finalize my work is aerosol, acrylic, oil, paper, and pastel.
Who inspires you?
I am influenced by the work of Andy Warhol and today’s artist Shepard Fairey. I enjoy mashing pop art with street art. Creating new versions and mashing up my own creations.
What are some of your highlights being an artist?
There are too many. Recently I was curated by Van Der Plas Gallery in Manhattan NYC (2021). In addition to artwork permanently installed at the Allegiant Stadium home of the Las Vegas Raiders (2020). I had the honor of being exclusively invited to display my art inside the Liberace mansion for an exclusive Auction. The luxury hotels and brands Venetian, Palazzo, MGM, and Belvedere displayed my work in recent years. If I am not showing in Las Vegas then I am in Los Angeles area.
