JEROO NEW FRONTIERS
OPENING: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21TH 2014, 7PM
RABBIT EYE MOVEMENT Art Space | Gumpendorferstrasse 91 | 1060 Wien
Stuttgart-based artist Jeroo began painting graffiti at the age of twelve. Working without a mentor, Jeroo learned everything he could about spray-painting by himself. This allowed him to develop a fresh, distinct style, which is mainly characterized by combining Graffiti with influences like Art Nouveau. After fifteen years of writing graffiti, Jeroo began creating characters on canvas. Using spray cans, he began to incorporate concrete shapes into his work, developing a special technique of taping to create exact angles and shapes. The result is a mesmerizing hybrid vision where fantastic creatures emerge from a world of letters.
“New Frontiers” features works that reveal Jeroo’s dedication to his self-taught craft, displaying a singular sense of personal aesthetic as expressed through unusual perspectives. By combining his graffiti background with newfound explorations in style and medium, Jeroo truly is scaling new frontiers in this exhibition.
