Jacob Yikes - KAboom

Original acrylic, metallic pigment, and aerosol on board.
625 x 830mm H - Framed in a gold-edged frame. 
About the Artwork: Another brilliant original painting by Jacob Yikes in his signature surrealist and dreamscape style. The use of composition and the balance of delicate details are expert level. The light dusting of metallic pigment gives a dreamy, glittery sheen to areas, while other areas have flat and dark applications, giving amazing contrast and grounding. The central area of detail is bursting with movement and action and includes the use of the mushroom motif as seen in his other unique and collectable originals. 
About the Artist: 
Jacob Yikes (Jacob Ryan, born 1987), is a multi-disciplinary artist from Ōtautahi Christchurch, New Zealand. From his roots in graffiti as a teenager, Yikes has earned a position as one of the country’s most prolific and respected urban artists. After joining the renowned DTR Crew in 2014, his profile and output expanded and his ever-evolving and distinctive style has seen him headline an array of street art festivals across Aotearoa, including Rise, Spectrum, Paradox and South Sea Spray.

Developing a focus on his fine art and studio-based works, Yikes completed his Advanced Diploma in Fine Arts in 2010 and has been exhibiting in gallery settings since. His unique style and technical skill have seen him complete commercial campaigns with Cadbury, Parrot Dog Brewery and Fiasco Brewing, as well as collaborations with musicians Tom Scott and Mellowdowns.  His work has even extended to hospitality fit-outs, creating special effects in the interiors of several popular restaurants, such as Mexico in Christchurch. 

His ability to adapt his style to various subjects has given Jacob access to private commissions, from small-scale studio works to massive walls, both private and public. Commissions with the DTR Crew and OiYOU! Street Art includes Jacob’s largest wall yet, the tribute to iconic physicist Earnest Rutherford on the Hutchinson Ford Building in central Christchurch (2022).
