Asa Jackson


Hampton artist Asa Jackson returned to the district to paint a mural live during the first NEON Festival in 2015, where he was once involved with Hampton Roads, The Canvas Project, which beautified the Zedd’s auction house in the winter of 2010.

As a multidisciplinary artist, Jackson’s work explores the cross section of textile from various countries, peoples, time periods, and personal histories. He remains active in the Hampton Roads community through his own art making and as a founder and curator for The Contemporary Arts Network and CAN Foundation, a not-for-profit arts organization in Newport News, with a focus on artist development, arts education, and public projects.
