Jesse Draxler "The World is Mine and I'm Thinking About You" Book
Jesse Draxler is one of the now's most influential creators. His frequency has been felt far and wide throughout the visual arts space since the early days of Tumblr. As a singular and innovative artist Draxler has threaded his brand of fractured, liminal stoicism through the pillars of culture working with fashion and music industries as well as regular illustrative contributions to major publications. All the while maintaining a staggeringly propulsive studio practice, regularly exhibiting worldwide, and amassing dedicated collectors & die-hard fans in spaces both online and off.
Draxler’s upcoming solo exhibition, U&I, will coincide with the release The World Is Mine & I’m Thinking About You, opening June 1st in Los Angeles. Forever chasing the unattainable specter of desire itself, The World Is Mine & I’m Thinking About You provides a snapshot of an artist perpetually in motion. Jesse Draxler's second major publication with Sacred Bones, 150+ pages of growth, is a snapshot of an artist at a high, while tirelessly chasing after the next.
The World Is Mine & I’m Thinking About You brings us into the perspective of one of today's most compelling artists and creators. Spanning medium and context Draxler's work effortlessly carries his unique aesthetic philosophy through the pages, and with clever use of minimally interspersed texts he loosely narrates a practice of continually raising the bar, confronting social media and industry, remaining on the bleeding edge of both aesthetic and new media, and obsessively questioning it all as he encounters it.
