Mixing the two worlds of classical and contemporary art, Jakes paintings range from small, sensitive studies to large-scale, epic canvasses. With his loose, instinctive use of paint he creates dark, ethereal works which capture imaginations, and provoke emotions, whilst at the same time being both unsettling and beautiful.
Jake came to Brighton as a classically-trained artist fresh from of a Fine Art degree at Falmouth University, where he was awarded the Sir Richard Ford Award scholarship from the Royal Academy for classical study at the Prado Museum in Madrid, as well as winning the accolade of the Free Range Most Promising Graduate. After his stint in Madrid, Jake came back to Brighton inspired by the paintings of some of the finest Baroque artists in the world. Although still a new name, he has exhibited in London and Brighton to great acclaim.
