Contemporary artist Jaykoe explores the impact of accelerated capitalism and globalisation on urban space. Building up from drawings, Jaykoe seamlessly crosses disciplines in his innovative use of photography, sculpture, installation, neon, painting, printmaking, video and bookmaking, to create artworks that are heavily layered, like the cities they represent.read more >
Conceptually provocative, his work sits at the intersection between urbanisation, post-colonialism, and inter-culturalism, a combination that allows him to trace urban-spatial movements within densely populated cities, and to translate these patterns into powerful visual forms. Drawing on his background as a DJ, Jaykoe applies the experimental process of sampling to his work, for an innovative approach to twenty-first century urbex art.
