The new Collection of work by JJ Adams is now in stock. The collection contains some of JJ's trademark tattoo portraits as well as referencing his love of gaming and comics with pieces like 'SpideyPool' and 'Arcade Wizard'.
JJ has again been shortlisted by the Fine Art Trade Guild for 'Best selling published artist for 2017'. In their citation they say:
"J J Adams has been one of the most impressive names within modern British art of the past three years. Featured in Vogue & GQ and with work regularly seen on television, J J. Adams has transitioned from being one of the UK’s most talked about artist to one of the nation’s most collectable. Blurring the lines between new media, pop, fine art, digital art and photography Adams’ work has benefited several charities including the British Liver Trust in 2016. "
The rebellious son of a Baptist preacher, J J began as an apprentice in a busy Cape Town tattoo studio in the mid-90’s that would ultimately inspire his first known collection of tattooed celebrity portraits. A theme he has continued with throughout his career. JJ uses a range of media from spray painting to hand painted acrylics, stencil, screen print, collage and photography.
There has been much speculation as to the content of the collection as a whole so here is a taster with 'Atomic Girl' (also available in black and white). The entire collection with full details can be seen here.Back to Blogs
