As a natural successor to Abstract Expressionism, Jumper Maybach's paintings embody the incendiary and explosive passion that characterized the truly American movement. Born of the nuances in trauma and healing, Maybach's works are weighted. The profound expression of both tragedy and healing is highly resonant and their sweeping beauty is undeniable. Works such as Hate No More, Can’t Fix Stupid, Aliens of The Universe, and Red Rocket, represent the spontaneity, the frenetic joy and the subversive messages swaddled in childlike expression that distinguish Jumper Maybach's unique style of painting. These are the qualities that link him so clearly to the great American tradition of spontaneous abstraction, with Art Dubai dubbing him the 'The 21st Century Jackson Pollock'.

 

Jumper Maybach's painting explores political concepts through the frenetic and organic forms that inhabit his canvases and interrogates social commentary with subversive deftness. At times, the messaging is subdued, a subtle slow burn; while often it is hiding in plain sight, offering a juxtaposition between abstraction and literal that speaks to the duality inherent in his personas. 

 

Born Ben Workman in 1963, the artist that will come to be known as Jumper Maybach formed ideas of self-worth and, like us all, self-hatred through the adversity and trauma of a socially fraught 1960’s Texas childhood.  These cornerstones of identity are acutely perceptible through the mixing of raw emotion and the perceived disorganization of color, line and form that coalesces into a world of explosive instinct. His paintings beg the viewer to step into his world of intuition through his playfulness and at times childlike wonder to walk with him to the better world he creates on his canvases.

Not long after Jumper began his career as an artist, he started to receive national and international recognition for his work. In 2013, Jumper Maybach held his first gallery show, which ultimately led to an invite to attend Art Dubai 2013, UAE as a VIP guest. Jumper exhibited in Dubai, UAE, in 2015 and in 2017 at the prestigious ALLIANCE FRANÇAISE. It was there that the Artist received a documentary film opportunity and was dubbed the Jackson Pollock of the 21st century.

Shortly after visiting Dubai, UAE, Jumper had the opportunity to exhibit 39 large-scale works of art in Venice, Italy, his largest exhibition to date. He created and curated a Venice series specifically for the show which also included a screening of the trailer to his documentary “The Jumper Maybach Story”. Another momentous moment occurred when Jumper was invited to exhibit his art at the Gallerie Du Louvre in Paris, France.
