Studio BW smile – Silvertone – CU

Born in South Africa. Son of Bonnie Serjeant, a painter still working in Cape Town.

Drawing & painting throughout childhood, Jared emigrated to the United States receiving his BFA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

Following his education, Jared moved to New York and worked within the advertising industry on digital and social media engagement campaigns for large, multi-national brands. While working with online influencers, Jared witnessed the seismic effects of technology and the unprecedented power and opportunity it gave individuals to reach large audiences directly. Many who were previously unrecognized or underserved now had a voice.

Moving back to Los Angeles has enabled Jared to focus on his portraiture that documents the personalities that are shaping our culture.
