Don Jacot

Don Jacot (b. 1949, Chicago, Illinois) is best known for his larger-than-life sized paintings of tin toys. Initially influenced by Charles Bell’s still lifes, Jacot has recently developed a completely new take on Photorealism by combining still life and landscape. The imagery for this new series is sourced from historical photographs of mid-twentieth-century America, scale model vehicles, and photographs of signage and other details from the time period. Jacot began exhibiting his work regularly in the 1980s and his paintings are held in many public collections in Detroit. He received his B.A. from University of Illinois, Champaign and his B.S. from Mercy College of Detroit.
