Photographs add another dimension
to Jai's art and often compliment the theme and narrative. He sources and shoots photos of people, objects, landscapes and textures. The images feature in the overall composition or appear as additional detail. Jai has travelled the world to meet and collaborate with many extraordinary photographers who have played an integral role in developing the art and concepts.
Jai's creative process involves both traditional and contemporary art practices. His early works were painted interpretations of works by Salvador Dali, H.R Giger and Picasso. He later expanded his knowledge and practice with illustration, watercolours, and ceramics. His extensive study of traditional mediums manifested in many artworks that displayed his skill and talent. But for Jai, these creations lacked in dynamism and required other mediums to bring them to life. Over, ten years Jai experimented with several methods to achieve his desired look. He discovered a process to fuse his traditional work with digital imagery and graphics. This discovery led him to merge practices and create art that is distinctive in style and execution.
Presentation is vital to experiencing Jai's masterpieces, and each work of art requires specialised printing and framing to complement and enhance the overall aesthetic. An essential aspect of his creative process is understanding print. With over twenty years of experience publishing his art, Jai is an expert at replicating his work on multiple formats. He tailor-makes each artwork, tweaking colours and lighting elements during the creative process to achieve the best visual experience possible for print and replication.
