Mantis Graffiti

For two decades many have know Jack for his contribution to the South African Graffiti scene. Considered one of the forefathers of the movement on his home soil. His works have been exhibited both locally, The United States, Europe and Australia. With affiliations to T.V.A. (South Africa), Bashers (Los Angeles) and C.T.H. (Germany) he remains constant in the art form. Along with legendary German artist SEEMSOE they formed 'Painter 4 Life' a global graffiti collective. Painting wherever their travels take them, and documenting stories of the journeys the artists along the way have experienced.

    

"Graffiti has always been a form of meditation for me. My therapy so to say. When I first began in 96' I was instantly hooked. It wasn't long before it became and obsession and ultimately a career. The art form has opened more doors than I could have ever dreamed of, and taken me to some of the most breathtaking places in the process. Besides leaving something behind in the publics eye to hopefully spark some sort of shift...It's been about the people I've made life long friends with purely because at some point in our lives we picked up a can with a need to express ourselves"
