Jacques de Beaufort is an artist and filmmaker living in Lake Worth, Florida where he is an Associate Professor of Visual Art at Palm Beach State College. Over the last decade, since receiving his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, de Beaufort has worked steadily towards the construction of a unique and visionary surrealist cosmology expressed through his paintings created while working “in the contemporary space, but to always be reaching for a realm that exists outside of now but simultaneous with both the past and present”. De Beaufort has exhibited extensively in South Florida, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and London and has received substantial critical support for his work including his first feature length film Sanctum and Sacrum, music videos and the founding of his project space UNIT1 Exhibitions in Lake Worth, FL.
