Memorial Artist ConsultantJEFRË Manuel
JEFRË studied at the Art Institute of Chicago prior to receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from Ohio State University. He has constructed numerous site-specific artworks in cities around the world including London, Manila, Miami, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Abu Dhabi and San Antonio. JEFRË was named one of seven “Faces of Design for 2007” by Florida Inside Out Architecture Magazine for his environmental art and couture landscapes. As a designer and public art initiator, his design solutions originate from a deep understanding of the historical, environmental, social and contextual relationships influencing the site, people and the architecture.
In 2008, JEFRË launched his own couture landscape and public art studio with a focus on public art and postcard moments. He was selected by the prestigious Marlborough Gallery in New York City as an “Up and Coming International Public Artist” and chosen by the Lexus Corporation to be the sixth member of their ECO Hybrid Living National Design Team to design environmentally conscious carbon neutral environments. JEFRË work was recently featured in NY Times and CNN and is currently nominated by the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Award in the category of “Design Mind”. In 2016, JEFRË finally completed his first monumental digital artwork close to home at Lake Nona, Florida called “The Beacon”.
