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.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jaybo Monk is 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 fulfil 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.

Jaybo is a dis-organiser who acts as a craftsman of serendipity with the aim of freeing art from the artists’ enclave. He fights passionately against symmetry, in order to avoid the ugliness of perfection. Every example of his work can be taken as a sum total in itself, but opening itself up to the viewer’s own associations in its details. Jaybo deconstructs our memories of the body and ideals of beauty. He deconstructs the story in a catalogue of half-memories that can be read, but not explained.

Jaybo demands independent visual decisions of the viewer instead of allowing the option of an open ending: he is not interested in creating images that illustrate and define, wanting instead to show vantage points that stimulate us to question and force us to make decisions. The life of forms in itself suffices, so as to avoid the circumlocution of the narration, because fine art is, of necessity, a fiction of its own reality. Jaybo’s images are visual haiku, visual acupuncture. Needles for the soul, filled simultaneously with nonsense and realism in the vacuum of ambiguity. The ambiguity of the hunted is revealed, somewhere between desire and hate. The artist is fleeing from any form of expectation: he wants to work disengaged from the gravitational pull of society. Jaybo was homeless from the age of 14years  until 19 years old.

Jaybo is co-founder of the culture and fashion magazine “Style and the Family Tunes” and the fashion label “Iriedaily”. Since 2005 he has been showing his work regularly in international galleries. The artist has had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Perth and Melbourne. He is a member of the London-based artist collective “Agents of Change” and “Le Grand Verre" in Milan . Jaybo’s work has its roots in street art, but nowadays is attributed more to the world of fine art.

Jaybo Monk lives and works in Berlin.
