Jeffrey W. LeFever is a visual artist born and raised in Southern California, currently working from Las Vegas, Nevada.
He is known for his early career’s iconic airbrushed illustration work and his experimental excursions into abstract and mixed media painting. He is also known for his work as a photographer.
Jeff’s photography began as a service to his commercial clients, helping catalog small product and capture large scale industrial manufacturing processes. His biggest photo-project to date has been photo-capturing the visual theological voice found in consecrated spaces— a fourteen-year project that spanned ten countries, eight states, and 58 cities.
As with his painting, his photography has grown into a more personalized form. Jeff has been developing his unique in-camera multi-exposure photographic style of abstraction since 2016. Plans for evolving this work into large scale multimedia artworks are underway.
To begin in 2021: Jeff has started seeking partnerships with gallery representation. Jeff will also begin reviewing special private & corporate project with rep/agents proposing large commission collaborations. All interested representatives for special commissions, collaborations, and Gallery representation, please contact Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org
Jeff appears in Brian C. Nixon’s new book, TILT, published by WIPF and Stock Publishers. TILT, Finding Christ In Culture is a collection of encounter/reflections by Brian Nixon in which he “takes the reader on a voyage of discovery, travelling the currents of God’s presence in culture, summed up in four streams that define a noun: people, places, things, and ideas. In his journey, Nixon touches upon people as diverse as Andy Warhol, Cormac McCarthy, Robert Redford, and Georgia O’Keeffe; places such as Canterbury, England, and Las Vegas, Nevada; things as unique as typewriters, trains, and abstract art; and ideas as fascinating as mathematics and beauty. In these short impressionistic pieces, Nixon, with the curiosity of a journalist, elicits intelligent discussion and poetic articulations, prompting a head tilt from those who join him on a theo-cultural expedition.” Among brief mentions in the book, Jeff’s main appearance is in part 4 (Ideas) on page 188, Consecrated Space: A conversation with Artist Jeff LeFever.
