The provocative muralist, known as Jerkface, has become world-renowned for daring dissections and reimaginations of iconic characters from the cannon of favorite comics and cartoons of our time. Born and bred in New York City, Jerkface has become a key player in the New York art scene, with murals in some of the most visited areas around the city. In addition to his national success in the states, Jerkface’s 2016 exhibition “Saturday Morning” at Under the Influence gallery in Hong Kong, attracted a large fan base in Asia, that has continued to spread globally as a result of several wall murals placed in central locations anywhere from Hong Kong to Los Angeles, to Chicago. His rapid rise to fame has made Jerkface one of the most noteworthy and highly sought after street artists today, with playful, yet sharp aesthetic that appeals to all ages.
