Artist Biography

Jacob Yikes is a painter/illustrator based in Christchurch. He has a heavy presence in the street art/mural scene and has been a part of numerous festivals and exhibitions over the past 7 years. As well as working outdoors Jacob also works as an illustrator and painter in his home studio. His large paper and wooden panel mixed media works often take on a more indepth personal approach usually depicting elements of his own life. With the use of several different wet medium materials in a freestyle manner, Jacob taps into his subconscious mind and the result is often a bizarre composition of strange figures and symbolism within a very surrealistic sometimes nightmarish world.
