Just Another Artist Jack Douglas heralds from the outer Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, where he grew up during a time when 'the mullet' and happy pants were still in fashion. Propelled by this visual statement, he drew great influence from Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes, tattoo flash, skateboard graphics, comics and the artwork of Salvador Dali and MC Escher.
During his teens he discovered graffiti and pop surrealism and the rest is history.
The images he spews from his mind are often grotesque, shining a spotlight on those less fortunate than us and those who dwell on the outskirts of our society and the darkly humerous situations they seem to land themselves in.
Jack's latest solo exhibition is 'YOU LITTLE S#!TS' - an exhibition inspired by skateboarding.
Opening at Blue Tile - 95 Smith St, Fitzroy Wednesday the 17th of Nov from 6pm.
Show runs till the 28th..
See you there!
