About the Artwork: Jen Heads exploration into portraiture and identity through her iconic character is ever-evolving. 'Jungle Mind' comments on our likeness with nature as well as our complete dependence on nature. The use of a full green palette and the multiple leaves weaving behind and inside the head area gives this head the allure of being lost within nature while being fully part of it.
About the Artist: Jenna Ingram is a multi-faceted artist and completed a BFA majoring in painting at Canterbury University in 2007. Her love for street art and graffiti was evident throughout her studies, but it wasn't until after the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes she began to put passion into practice. Since pursuing urban art as a creative outlet, she founded Fiksate Gallery with her now-husband Nathan Ingram and together they showcase and support NZ's leading urban artists.
