Jason Archer is an American visual artist, and pioneer of contemporary arts in Austin, Texas. His work fuses Pop Art and cultural archetypes to create modern myths that reimagine historical events, natural phenomena or existing ritual.

His work includes political satire and Texas inspired characters such as Jesus Cornbread & the Alcoholics and Stray of the Dead. Archer’s early career in animation earned him a Grammy and an MTV Video of the Year Award for directing and animating Frijolero, a music video for the Mexican rock band Molotov. Currently, Archer produces and curates Frank Public Art, an ongoing public art project in downtown Austin. He co-owns Show Goat Mural Works, a mural company specializing in design and installation of large scale murals such as Daniel Johnston’s Love is the Question?
