About the Artist
After fifteen years of writing graffiti, Jeroo felt the need for a different approach, so he built a small studio in his apartment and began creating characters on canvas. His artworks are complex because they are painted using spray cans. Jeroo developed a special technique of taping to perfect the structure of the work and create exact angles and shapes. The resulting product can be seen in his recent works that show a mesmerizing hybrid vision where fantastic creatures emerge from a world of letters.
By combining his graffiti background with newfound explorations in style and medium, Jeroo has definitely found his own unique style.
In 2013, Jeroo presented his book Graffiti School: A Student Guide published by Thames and Hudson. The book is an introduction to graffiti techniques and style, aimed at “legal sprayers” who value artistic quality and professional finish. Early chapters attempt to contextualize graffiti, looking at it from cultural, historical and artistic perspectives. In addition, Graffiti School: A Student Guide is all about practical instructions and basic knowledge: from composition, handling, and maintenance of your graffiti equipment through to illustrated step-by-step instructions to design elements and techniques. The book also includes a teacher’s manual. In 2011, Jeroo contributed to the book Street Fonts: Graffiti Alphabets from Around the World, which was also published by Thames & Hudson.
