35° Duncan Jago – Adidas Urban Artists Series

Hello 360° Followers

Referring to the exhibition at the West Berlin Gallery which will take place from the 8th to the 27th of July 2011, I would like to introduce to you one of the artists – Duncan Jago.

Duncan Jago was born in the UK in 1972. Since graduating from the University Of The West of England in Bristol in 1998,
Duncan Jago’s work has undergone a prolonged and continuous process of abstraction.

Enclosed some of his works of art


Most recently, Duncan has taken the idioms of spray painting to a level of sophistication rarely seen in the medium, completely uninhibited by any notions of what spray painting is, or should be. There is maturity and depth to the use of colour that hints at the mineral traces left by geological time, or the complex nebulae of deep space revealed by Hubble’s keen eye.

His work is the result of a stream-of-consciousness approach, where meaning presents itself through process. One might well use the phrase abstract expressionism, since form and structure have undergone a process of abstraction, whilst primarily being emotionally expressive. It is both formally organised and balanced, as well as spontaneous and visceral.

Duncan’s work has been exhibited extensively worldwide and is held in both public and private collections.
