Jamie Brown, Born 1983, London.
Foundation - Camberwell College of Arts
BA Hons - University of Brighton
Jamie works across numerous mediums, encompassing collage, drawing, wall painting, design & sculpture.
His practice is characterized by a number of attributes:
A willingness to embrace risk and take chances, both in a literal sense as well as artistically. To work fast, let the process dictate the outcome and build on happy accidents.
On spatial projects he works in a site specific manner, making the most of every architectural characteristic and tailoring visuals to interact with existing structures and surfaces.
Jamie relishes the power of simple silhouettes, vivid colour palettes and lo-fi pattern to grab attention, jog memory or make wry observations about the way we live our lives.
Whether visual language be pure abstraction or landscape, he enjoys reducing elements to their simplest graphic form.
