he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Clark
University in Massachusetts.|

Masters Degree in Practical Spirituality from the Seminary of

philosophical formation with camp works in many countries like England,
Ireland, New Zealand, The Kingdom of Tonga, Thailand, China, Japan,
Bora Bora (Polynesia), Australia, Mexico, and most of fhe Meso-American
cultural and ceremonial artistic settlements. His most recent
trips for spiritual and mystical reflections have been made to Machu
Pichu, Peru and Belize.
Jacobson has presented 25 individual and
important collective exhibitions, where he revealed the personal and
intimist character of symbolic and informal abstraction. As he is
an artist of great sensibility, he captures in his painting the
spectator by the strong mystical projection of the interior movement of
his art. In the past ten years, his works have been fully propagated in
prestigious and international-projection circles, such as Art News Magazine, Arte al Dia International Magazine, and ARTes en Santo Domingo.

out a long schedule of exhibition, among them galleries and museums in
the USA, France, Spain, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean Area.

Latin America with the most profound articulation of the intimate
abstraction as language and personal aesthetic; who transcribes his
interior self as the soul calligraphy and consciousness on the canvas”.
Jacobson has been recently distinguished by the UNESCO’s (The United
Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization) Puerto Rican
Association, on the occasion of the association’s 30th anniversary.
