Biography / Mr. Jago

With vibrant canvases full of drips and splatters, British artist Mr. Jago blurs the line between graffiti, abstract expressionism and contemporary modernism. His works today are far more expressive and abstract. Mr. Jago says that ‘love of nature has been the biggest influence’ on his works of art. His work is featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Raised in Bristol’s graffiti scene and earlier known for his heavily illustrative style and initiating the Scrawl movement, a school of street art, Duncan Jago’s artwork has evolved through his studies of illustration at the University of the West of England. His landscape imagery with a strong focus on colour is reminiscent of the mid-century Colour Field movement and pioneers of Abstract Expressionism like Mark Rothko. Using spray-painting techniques Mr. Jago creates multi-coloured fields and calligraphic expressions.
