Jake Ginga was born on the outskirts of a widely respected and involved Native American family from Massachusetts. He’s is well known for his unique approach to portraiture and the seamless integration of indigenous iconography and contemporary design elements. He feels that he is forever occupying the cultural space between his Native Heritage and his traditional American upbringing. His work is primarily a study of visual culture, a representation of himself in that emotionally complicated space. His paintings depict colorful and powerful portraits that are dismantled and pieced together creating artworks that combine cultural pattern work with contemporary design.
