Jermaine Dante’ Burse is a prolific self taught artist who began drawing impressive black & white sketches on almost any surface he could find when he was three years old. Gradually the sketches of cartoon characters, super heroes and abstracts became more sophisticated and intricate as Jermaine added shading and color to his work. Jermaine began to study art of the great master’s as well as the art of 20th century artists, DuChamp, Picasso, Jean Michele Basqiuat and pop artist Andy Warhol. “Everything you can imagine is real,” wrote Pablo Picasso and Jermaine’s work is the epitome of that philosophy. Over the past 5 years, his art has evolved to a spontaneous realism genre that can not be easily categorized but it certainly recognized as a “Maine’ original with his depictions of figures such as NBA star Kevin Durant, Brand Ferrari, Marilyn Monroe and Stephen Curry. He is also a socially charged artist with a few series touching on topics such as Homelessness, No Middle Class, Health Care reform and going after your dreams. He also excepts commissioned art from clients who seek the “Maine” touch for portraits of their favorite icons, families and friends. Jermaine’s fine art work is on display at various San Francisco art shows, restaurants, tasting rooms, coffee shops, galleries and wineries. Jermaine is an active participant with Doctor’s without Borders & Build a Heart foundation, where he has helped raise tens of thousands of dollars.
