Jacob Brault uses his creative practice to investigate everyday shared and personal experiences, utilitarian objects and post-minimalism. His art reflects his interest in Deluzian philosophy, traditional materials, installation and interconnectivity.
As a multimedia artist, Brault works with a multitude of materials and processes to engage the viewer physically and psychologically.
Brault was born in Fond du Lac, Wisc., and received his BFA from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point in 2007. He then lived in Italy for three years and worked for the University of Georgia Studies Abroad Cortona Program before entering UGA’s MFA program.
