ABOUT THIS ART

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 Inch Black Wood Frame with UV-Glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

"I normally, and I still do, work in a serial way. I choose my formats in functions of the space where it will be exhibited. I dispose the canvas around me and work one after another slowly in. I provoke mistakes which will be avoided on the next canvas, due to this each one becomes a unique answer to the "problems" I have created myself.

The idea behind "Beauty Fool" was to start a conversation on the fact that beauty became a form of success, in other words: if you are ugly, you are a loser. You'll be mobbed and your chance to have a good job is extremely limited.  I have worked in fashion and culture magazines since 1994 and I could easily estimate the main changes in subcultures, and advertising companies jump on early, getting more from the underground iconographic than before. The internet did change individualism in a sea of
beauty cliches." - Jaybo Monk


ABOUT THIS ARTIST:
Jaybo Monk is a French artist born 1963 who lives in Berlin on a constant journey. With his store of memories he explores the world and draws an emotional topography of his life, consisting of half hidden visual fragments of memory that are revealing and timeless at the same time.

He is an artist at art’s end, where everything has already been painted, where all words have already been spoken, where the viral conduits of the internet merely fulfill the purpose of mediocrity, in which the imitator copies the replicator who copies the imitator and where, at each stage, some of the quality is sacrificed.he revolts against every form of this intoxication of imitation, rebels against all forms of institution and existing order. The artist follows paradoxical ideas, born of the legacy of Romanticism, ideas on the edge of insanity, orientated on childhood, nature, places of not-thinking. The result is a dance between the rational and irrational.
