The French born resident of Berlin has been gaining a lot of attention in recent years. He co-founded Style Magazine and has also worked as an actor and musician. His recent efforts have been given over to the creation of art.

The medium for these works is spray paint on canvas. The aerosol arts have been traditionally limited to graphic character design. Jaybo exhibits a control over the can that advances these portraits into intimate territory. It is clear that he has captured more than simple likeness in the paintings for this show. Look closely and you will discover much about the soul of the subjects through the meditations of the creator.
