Nostalgic and subversive, Jerkface is a New York-based artist most widely recognised for his playful re-imaginings of pop culture iconography.Read More
With his distinct signature style, a Jerkface mural is always easily identifiable. Through repetition, geometric abstraction and a surrealist fusion of fan-favourite cartoon characters, Jerkface creates playful compositions that evoke nostalgia. His characters, taken from the Simpsons, the Looney Tunes, Sesame Street and other popular cartoons, exist in their own hybrid of clashing universes. With compelling narratives and a kaleidoscopic palette, Jerkface’s compositions represent the uninhibited optimism of youth.
A prolific muralist, Jerkface is also one of the most readily identifiable artists in the street art community. His first work of public art notably survived the whitewashing of historic 5pointz in 2013, and he remains a forerunner in the New York street art scene, with one of the largest murals on display in New York City.
Jerkface lives and works in New York City.
