I am also a recipient of three awards from the Medial Museum in London, England and I have been awarded winning artist in Cover Competition for the inside front cover of the Winter/Spring national print and electronic magazine.
Besides competitions, his art has also made an appearance in an episode of HGTV, “Million Dollars Homes”.

“Arthur Jacob’s photographic art possesses a glowingly rhythmic quality that is at once beautiful and intriguing. The floral images are breathtaking in their depiction of flowers that are presented as natural art, each petal complementing the others in a finely wrought composition. Some of the flowers on a black background are stand-alone- natural portraits, while others fill their compositions with elegant forms. Arthur Jacob also creates dynamic abstracts that infuse each work with fluid form and design. The use of color in Arthur Jacob’s photography attests to his expertise in using darks and lights, soft and bright, and subtle as well as brilliant hues. His monochromes especially illustrate a mastery of form that gives depth to his images. Arthur Jacob’s fine art photography is a combination of the ability to envision a superb image with the skill to create the artwork.” -Ellen Fisch, Internationally known Abstract photographer
“Arthur Jacob is an extremely versatile and talented digital artist and photographer. His work first came to my attention as the Director of the Manhattan Arts International online gallery and our panel of jurors subsequently invited him to exhibit his work on our website. We received many positive comments about his work and new followers. Since then his creativity and innovation have continued to expand. It has been a pleasure to watch him make greater contributions to the contemporary world of digital art.” -Renee Phillips, Founder, and Director, Editor-Chief, Manhattan Arts International
“Through the mastery of technical means, Arthur Jacob reinvents the living and characterizes it; demonstrating the reality through warm colors and inviting us to the pure participation of the extension he exercises in his art.” -Emanuela Catalano, Dott. Prof. Storica dell ‘ArteDocenter di Storica dell ‘Arte e conservazione dell Beni Culturall, Florence, Italy.
“Arthur Jacob tests the limits of photography, deconstructing reality in swirling patterns and a spectrum of glowing colors that render the known world mysteriously new.” -Ed McCormack, Managing Editor, Gallery & Studio Magazine, New York, NY
