Jesse Bell is a local Darwin artist who grew up by the Adelaide River. He has Maori Heritage and spent time living in New Zealand where he first developed a passion for painting through work opportunities with local artists.
Moving back to Darwin as a young adult, he continued to develop his painting skills in the graffiti scene. He was quickly recognised for his talent in painting realism, gaining a substantial amount of commissions for his work. Specialising in animals and portraiture, he now works full-time as a street artist and signwriter.
