In the early 2000’s, after receiving a BFA in Drawing from the Alberta College of Art & Design (ACAD), Jeff Tallon lived throughout Canada, Europe and Asia. These experiences inform the global yet local nature of his work and interrogate methods for disseminating information, communication, growth, decay, tyranny, freedom, life and death.
From 2010-2013, Tallon's worked synthesized painting and technology. Many of his paintings included QR Codes, which allowed viewers to interact with the works to capture information using a hand-held device.
In 2019, Tallon completed a MFA in Interdisciplinary Art, Media and Design from OCAD University. The focus of his thesis work peered into the interlaced phenomenon of political economy, which typically includes the economy, society and politics.
Recent projects include documenting libraries during the 2020 COVID lockdown throughout the Greater Toronto Area and photographing the States of Liberty series throughout Toronto, Canada using a medium format Mamiya RZ67 Pro II camera.
