Artist Jumper Maybach Talks Ending Hate & Bullying (AUDIO)

Produced by Charlotte Robinson


In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with artist Jumper Maybach whose mission is to be a part of the solution to help end hate, bullying and intolerance globally. Jumper believes that a person’s trauma defines the individual. Maybach’s journey came to a head in 2010 after suffering decades of emotional abuse and being marginalized for his sexual orientation. He found himself on the brink of an emotional precipice which was instrumental and vital to his healing process by releasing his pain as well as his joy into his artwork. The art is a constant evolution of color and complete abandonment of the paint. The complexity of the abstract style comes from deep 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. Maybach’s art is about turning darkness into light. Not long after Jumper began his career as an artist he started to receive national and international recognition for his work. In 2013 Jumper held his first gallery show which ultimately led to an invite to attend Art Dubai 2013 as a VIP guest. Jumper exhibited in Dubai, UAE in 2015 and in 2017 at the prestigious Alliance Française. It was there that he received a documentary film opportunity and was dubbed the Jackson Pollock of the 21st century. Now Maybach has partnered with 4 distinct companies in an effort to expand their product line across multiple consumer retail segments as well as bring new audiences to the brand and mission. The companies are BIG LOViE, Ahdorned, OPR Eyewear and V. Fraas with retail products launching now through September 2022. We talked to Jumper about what he hopes to accomplish with his work and his spin on our LGBTQ issues. 

Jumper Maybach (born Ben Workman) is an American artist originally from Corpus Christi, Texas. Jumper appreciates the opportunities he has been given and is committed to giving back to multiple organizations through both financial and artistic contributions. He and his partner David Sanford 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.
