b. 1994 -
Jacob Spokes (b. 1994) is an emerging artist living and working in Sydney’s inner west. In 2014, Spokes completed a Diploma of Fine Art – St George College of Fine Art, Kogarah, with a focus on painting. Spokes’ vivid abstract paintings are an emotive and conceptual response to landscape and place, inspired by the contrast of built and unbuilt environment that forms the city of Sydney.
Jacob Spokes’ on his process;
“I have an idea of colour relationship before I start and that’s it. No preliminary sketches or anything. The works reveal themselves after a layered serendipitous process, whereby I apply layers of colour and form until I reach a point in which the work is compositionally sound.”
