Jimi Crayon became an artist partly out of desperation, he says: after dropping out of college, he worked at a graffiti art gallery, but was plagued with thoughts about what to do next. Skilled at drawing since he was a child, he says graffiti art became his route out of such confusion. Jimi’s exuberant prints combine natural elements like flowers with symbols of urban life and humanity. Their spontaneity reflects his beginnings as a graffiti artist, while their flatness and saturated colors evoke the Pop aesthetics of Takashi Murakami and Peter Max. The print Flies and Toilet Paper (2013) contains multiple layers, as though referencing the accumulation of graffiti on a surface: a photograph of green leaves is overlaid with a rendering of flowers on top of which paint appears to have been squirted in tactile blobs.
