Short Description

Born in 1984 in Buffalo, New York, Jacob Kassay became a prominent force in the art world around 2009 due to high sales in auction venues.

He employs a chemist to coat his canvas with silver photographic chemicals. The reflective surfaces do not depict images, however, but are reflective of people looking into the works. Further, Kassay does not apply final fixative measures to the work, and instead intends for the "images" to decay.
