Now a firm favourite with celebrities such as Harry Styles and serious art collectors, JJ Adams is one of the hottest properties on the contemporary art scene with limited edition prints selling out upon release.
The rebellious son of a baptist preacher, JJ emigrated as a child from Plymouth in the UK to Cape Town in South Africa in the early eighties. JJ returned to the UK in the mid-nineties having studied graphic design and worked as a part-time apprentice in `Wildfire Tattoos`, a busy tattoo studio in central Cape Town.
After a number of years living in London and Plymouth and struggling to make ends meet, JJ decided in 2011 to use his experience he had gained working in the tattoo industry to produce a series of black and white tattooed celebrity images which set the ball rolling to art stardom. He is bold and confident in style often completely transforming celebrity images or iconic landmarks with his own inimitable edge and blurring the lines between new media, pop, fine art, digital art and photography.
