About the artist
Jaykoe’s work explores globalisation through its accelerated impact on city space.
Operating at the intersection of urbanisation, postcolonialism and interculturalism, urban-spatial movements are sampled and traced within densely populated and expanding cities.
His interdisciplinary approach ranges through drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, installation and video.
Enquiries into movements of cultural resistance are layered with a background as a sound-system DJ. This resonates throughout the work, formally with the application of the techniques used in audio sampling and conceptually with pirate radio as a metaphor for the notion of networked performances across global cities, all with the potential to construct interactive and intercultural spaces.
The Insider Katie Tsouros says:
"Utterly contemporary, he gets to the heart of the vastness, but also the more personal spaces of the world. His style is unique, and brilliant."
