Jacob Yikes - A Pool Full of Deep Ends

Giclee print on 300gsm Archival Matte Paper, 594 x 841 mm, edition of 20
About the Artwork: There is so much to see here! With an astounding amount of detail and imagery, this print is taken from an original painting that took two years to finish! In contrast with his more recent 'calmer' output, this art work is reminiscent of earlier works filled to the brim with chaos. 
About the Artist: Jacob Yikes, born Jacob Ryan, is a multi-disciplined artist based in Christchurch, New Zealand. His extensive background in graffiti and street based, work often very large scale, has earned him the position of one of the country’s most sought after and active artists. Having headlined many festivals including Rise, Spectrum and Paradox. While Jacob’s presence is heavy on the streets, his series of surreal fine art work is coming into a life of its own. Still influenced by the exterior work, his large-scale illustrations and paintings on paper show a more in depth side to artist and how his mind works. With the use of bizarre characters and surrealistic scenery, Yikes’s work can be viewed as a look into the artist himself more often than not. He is somewhat redefining the idea of a self-portrait as he often refers to his paintings as an extension of himself, using symbolic ideas and imagery referring to his past, present and future painted in portrait format.
