Introducing Mixed Media Artist J J Adams

Last updated on

JJ Adams has taken the art world by storm in recent years with his provocative and edgy mixed media artworks which have rapidly become favourites amongst celebrities and collectors alike.

Now based in London, JJ Adams is a new media and mixed media artist who spent much of his upbringing in South Africa before returning to the UK. Described as the ‘Zappa or Hendrix’ of the UK Fine Art scene, Adams’ work has been featured in Vogue and GQ and has worked alongside clients such as Rolls Royce and Bang & Olufsen.

Bold and confident in style, he often completely transforms celebrity images or iconic landmarks with his own inimitable edge and blurring the lines between new media, pop, fine art, digital art and photography.

Adams uses a range of new and mixed media in his work from spray paint to hand painting acrylics, screen printing, collage and digital composite and matte painting as well as photography. He admits being influenced at art college by artists like Derric van Rensburg, Norman Rockwell, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and Sir Peter Blake.
