Jason Bailey

Founder And Art Nerd
Artnome

Jason Bailey is an art nerd trying to trigger an art analytics revolution. Concerned by the lack of good data on art and the frequency of forgery and misattribution, Jason developed the world’s largest analytical database of complete works by many of our most important artists. Jason founded the blog Artnome.com to share previously unobtainable insights from his one-of-a-kind database. He has expanded the blog’s coverage to include articles and interviews with artists working at the intersection of art and technology whom he feels are undervalued and frequently misunderstood.

Jason has a BA from Framingham State University (2001) where he studied studio art and art history and an MFA in digital art from the Dynamic Media Institute at Massachusetts College of Art and Design (2010). A serial entrepreneur, he has worked at startups in the Boston area on the cutting edge of technology for the last 20 years. Jason is mission-driven to use technology and data to improve the world's art historical record and to improve opportunities for artists from historically underserved or marginalized groups.
