Jayemaich (artist moniker) was born in New Jersey, raised in Brooklyn, NY and currently resides in West Palm Beach, FL. From an early age, he was influenced by urban backdrops while also finding interests in the complexities of history, culture and philosophies. Jayemaich thrives on creating artwork that empowers women because of the influence of being raised by a single mother. His goal is to create content for buildings and walls that are powerful, metaphorical and create a buzz in a community while making the expereince fun for everyone involved throughout the process.
His focus, when collaborating on a project, is on creating content that is directed from his own narratives, to develop a better representation of the metaphorical messages of his works.
His artworks include juxtapositions between classical art imagery and contemporary figures, to draw comparisons but also to challenge social constructs that have created in-opportunity for people. He uses blocking and distressed aesthetics to give and remove power from figures.
Projects span several states:
La Liberation de la Persephone located in Passaic, NJ is a piece about the freedom from perception and the empowerment of the downtrodden.
The Beauty of Gray on a Sunny Day located in York, PA is a nod to the working class as they simultaneously construct the American Flag in this piece, while also confronting the drastic separatism in this country and the theory that two opposing sides of thought raging against each other creates a standstill, and that the collection and melding of thought “or gray thought” is far more beautiful and productive.
