Born in 1969 in Melborne, Australia, Cate Blanchett studied at Australia's National Institute for Dramatic Art, graduating in 1992. Her U.S. film debut was in 1997's Paradise Road and she's gone on to star in a number of lauded projects, including The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Aviator, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and two films about Queen Elizabeth I. In 2005, she won an Academy Award (best supporting actress) for her role as Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator. She received another Oscar in 2014, this time for best actress for her performance in Blue Jasmine (2013), and has earned further acclaim for her role in 2015's romantic drama Carol.
Jack Graves was born in 1988 in Jacksonville, FL. He spent much of his adolescence in his father's art gallery, Graves International Art, surrounded by a diversity of artworks from Albrecht Durer to Andy Warhol. He began producing works from an early age, and later studied art history and fine art at The Blue Ridge School, Newcastle University in England, and Hampden-Sydney College. At The Blue Ridge School Graves won the Departmental Award for his art, during his tenure at Newcastle University he was selected to produce the artwork for the Annual Ball, and at Hampden- Sydney College he was commissioned to create the cover art for their annual book of poetry, The Garnet. Since 2011, Jack has exhibited throughout The United States and sold to collectors internationally. In recent years Graves has produced album artwork for musicians and created large scale murals for businesses. While completing these commissions he has been diligently honing his skill and attention towards a new art form, “Eclecticism”. Graves states, “An “Eclecticism” work uses two or more different art styles, from the past or what new ones I develop for the future, in best presenting an original artwork.”.
Graves seeks to unveil this series of iconoclastic works by early 2017.
