Jaybo Monk at "142 Jahre Kunst in Hamburg"

Not many of you may know this, but showing the work of artist Jaybo Monk with heliumcowboy has been a wish of mine for many years now. So you can believe how stoked I am that Jaybo gave us some brand new artwork to exhibit at the current gallery group exhibition "142 Jahre Kunst in Hamburg" (until July 24, open every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 2-6 pm).

Jaybo is an exceptional artist with an more than exciting history. He has that combination of wit and wisdom that mirrors in his work, but also makes him a great person to be around. His style is unique and unmatched, and I personally see a beautiful combination of melancholic and romantic surrealistic imagery with an urban-erratic touch in both his paintings and drawings. And well, his objects are again a completely different approach to making us stop, breathe in and think for a moment in our hectic lives ... 

His work is exhibited by influential galleries, such as Kallenbach in Amsterdam, Soze in Los Angeles, Black Book Gallery in Denver or Benoni in Copenhagen (to name a few), and is hanging in important collections, most noteably maybe music producer Swizz Beats' "The Dean Collection" in New York or at the house of Timbaland. Jaybo Monk is an active, socially engaged mind and part of the artist collective "Agents of Change".

Famous collectors from the world of music: Timbaland (left) and Swizz Beats (right) with Jaybo Monk.

Whitewall magazine described his art pretty well in this feature:

„The creations of Jaybo Monk are ambiguous yet hauntingly powerful and of great visual impact. Creating his own version of beauty, narration and meaning, Jaybo Monk is the spokesman of both dreams and reality. In a world where there is absolutely nothing new to be said or done, Monk leaves the rules behind and dedicates himself to the concepts of the original, the chaotic, the insane and the irrational.”

For our exhibition here in Hamburg, Jaybo Monk created 3 Diptychs - wooden frames connected by hinges, so you can open and close the artworks like a book. One side always presents the advertising posters for The Daily Sun, a tabloid in Cape Town, with a crude headline that seems to make sense only in a surreal way. The other side of the Diptych then presents a drawing by Jaybo in which he tries to translate these headlines into his own interpretations of their meaning. 

JAYBO MONK: Monkey Muthi Terror! (2016). Collected poster from Daily Sun (Cape Town), graphite on 220g Fabriano, wood, glass, 106 x 72 x 3 cm | 2.000 € |  Click image to send us a mail and check for availability of the work of Jaybo Monk

One thing I am always telling people is that you need to view artwork in person when you have the chance. That was one of the reasons why I founded heliumcowboy almost 15 years ago, so that more people get to see great international art face-to-face here in Hamburg. Forget the Internet, it can only serve as am amuse gueule and an event planner when it comes to art! Having the opportunity to see the work of Jaybo Monk in our town is a rare thing, so if you haven't had a chance to check it out - now is the time!!!
