Jason Trucco is an award-winning artist and director who applies his aesthetic to art & exhibitions, live performances, motion pictures, and music videos. His signature style is highly experimental and distinctive for it’s simplicity, which cuts out the clutter.
Trucco’s practice is firmly rooted in the fine arts and his drawings, prints, films, and interactive installations have been exhibited in galleries internationally. EXHIBIT A: New Works by Jason Trucco debuted at Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles. He has recently mounted installations at Yerba Buena Centre For The Arts in San Francisco and Angell Gallery in Toronto, where NOW magazine, North America's largest free weekly, named his solo show one of the top 10 art shows of the year.
Trucco conceived and directed the world’s first 360 degree interactive music video, Whatever Lola Wants, for Grammy® winner Macy Gray and he is considered the leading director in the medium. Following Lola, Trucco worked increasingly with renowned artists and performers, creating landmark music videos for Devo, Queens Of The Stone Age, Glen Campbell, Billy Idol, and others.
The Wall Street Journal featured Devo's What We Do, directed by Trucco (with collaborator Kii Arens and Gerald Casale) in it's article Beyond Thriller: Reinventing Music Video, writing "MTV has moved on. But ambitious filmmakers, armed with new technology, are ushering in another Golden Age.”
Regarded as a leader in new forms of storytelling, Trucco turned his attention to live theatre and with Culturehub and La MaMa Experimental Theatre, created GET TO NOMI: A New Wave Opera, which debuted at Ellen Stuart Theatre in NYC.
Trucco’s awards and honors include a BET Award and a Peabody Award for Excellence in Television.
