The Jumper Maybach Story

Jumper Maybach, born Ben Workman in 1963, is an American artist originally from Corpus Christi, Texas. Dubbed the Jackson Pollock of the 21st century, Jumper’s constant evolution of color and bold mixing of techniques is the artist’s unique and vivid way of expressing freedom, love and acceptance. Every stroke of the brush, application of paint and product design that emerges is a true work of art—and every piece of art stands against bullying and intolerance in the world.

The art is a constant evolution of color and complete abandonment of the paint. It is an unplanned performance that creates the extraordinary works. The complexity within his art comes from within. Jumper is unashamed to teach the world a lesson in compassion. His art is a beacon for ending hate, bullying and intolerance in the world.

Not long after Jumper began his career as an artist, he started to receive national and international recognition for his work. In 2013, Ben Workman held his first gallery show, which ultimately led to to him visiting Art Dubai. It was there that the Artist received a documentary film deal and was dubbed the Jackson Pollock of the 21st century.

Shortly after Art Dubai, Jumper had the opportunity to exhibit 39 large important pieces of work in Venice, Italy in his largest exhibition to date. He created and curated a Venice series specifically for the show which also included a screening of the trailer to his documentary “The Jumper Maybach Story”. Another momentous career moment occurred when Jumper was invited to exhibit his art at the Gallerie Du Louvre.

Jumper appreciates the opportunities he has been given and takes time to give back to multiple organizations around the country through both financial and artistic contributions. He and his partner David actively support GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign, the Matthew Shepard Foundation, AIDS Foundation Houston and the Trevor Project in addition to many other local and national charities.
