Jacob Rochester Presents 'Under Pressure' at FRANCHISE

A collection of paintings inspired by the artist’s many muses.

For Jacob Rochester, art can be anything that provides him inspiration. Persian carpets, vintage Porsches, Japanese streetwear — bits and pieces that have shaped him since his early days growing up in Connecticut to his current home in Los Angeles.

Having recently worked on an NFT collection for the NBA, Rochester and FRANCHISE have teamed up again for a new solo exhibition, titled Under Pressure. Mostly painted against an empty backdrop, each element within his paintings can be seen as portals into the artist’s inner muses and daily experiences.

To accompany the works on view, Rochester has also released a new limited-edition tee, along with a new EP, dubbed 100+. The four track collection is a blend of house & UK garage-inspired tracks, laced with R&B vocals, available on all music streaming platforms starting on November 4th.

Under Pressure will open this Saturday, October 22 and run through November 12.

Elsewhere, Lourenzo Smith documents his love for vintage Mercedes-Benz in FULL FRAMES.
