That Art Boy

July 2 - July 29

Opening Reception: Saturday, July 13, 1-7 p.m.

About the Artist:

Jahmai Brown

I create works in various mediums, always including bright colors, engaging patterns and textures. I like when my work is interactive and draws the viewer in through things like lighting and site specificity. My work simply requires that the viewer have an appreciation for examining and looking closer at art. I want it to be accessible to anyone from art critics, to someone walking down the street who doesn’t know anything about art.

My work is a process based on exploration of colors and gathering non- traditional art materials. Each piece is different. I use found materials, because in some way it gets the viewers’ attention. They may recognize something in the piece and wonder how it was used in the piece as a whole. I also gravitate to bright colors for my pieces to get the viewers’ attention. I choose one color and build off of that. Similarly, in my drawings, I want to have colors bounce off of each other. I try to pick one to two colors to start with and then determine which colors will play well with them. No matter the color combination, I want the viewer to take one look and say, “Wow, this is beautiful!” In order for my work to have a scene of life and create order, I want the viewer to interact with the pieces.

I aim for my work to be a creation of my own ideas, stemming from trying new things that other people don’t do often in their work, to something that would blow people’s mind in a sense of attitude, power, and color. A lot of my work relates to my family.
