Framed: Jerome Davenport - High Contrast
Meet WA-based aerosol artist Jerome Davenport ahead of his new exhibition.
Jerome Davenport is an Australian aerosol artist blurring the boundaries of graffiti, muralism and geometry, combining street art and portraiture, impacting a relatable vision that the general public can enjoy. With influences drawing from culture, animals, people, geometry and more, his style is characterised by a distinctive photo-realism, with elaborate portrait pieces that are almost impossible to draw yourself away from.
Davenport runs ‘Up on Hay STudio’ - a multi-use exhibition/gallery promoting and supporting local emerging artists along with more established drop-ins. He’s also the Founder of Blank Walls, a collective he aspires to be internationally recognised at the forefront of street art, design, installations and sculpture.
In March 2016 Davenport will embark on a year-long trip. Exploring, creating and painting from Argentina to Northern Canada, but first he's hosting an exhibition on February 12 called HIGH CONTRAST (details HERE) - a collection of 30 exhibited over two days in one of Perth’s yet to be appreciated exhibition spaces, Fridays Studio on Aberdeen Street.
