IT'S ALL A DREAM

My name is Jack, artist name 'Freo'. I'm a proud Melbourne based visual artist, living and working in Melbourne's south eastern suburbs. I've been an artist all my life.

I've had a lot of crappy jobs from scrubbing dishes to selling golf equipment. I found myself painting a lot for people who wanted some custom art while studying and playing golf full time as well as part time job on the side. After a couple of years I ditched the golf and was in and out of a couple jobs whilst painting on the side. Fast forward to 2020, after realising I could make enough from my art, I let go of part time work and decided I was meant to be in the art world forever and haven't looked back since.

I currently paint murals and canvas full time and hold exhibitions. My favourite part about it all is definitely creating a new collection of original artwork and hosting a solo exhibition for the world to see. There is nothing more rewarding or fulfilling. I'm very proud of what I've accomplished in my art career so far, and for sure couldn't do it without so many legends that surround me.

I like to take inspiration from my personal life experiences and social issues. I use these inspirations to create a bold and usually bright form of pop art. I love to work with characters, lines, shapes and colour. 

As an artist and designer, I find inspiration in the ever changing world around me. I employ a personal vocabulary of bold and creative imagery to express the mixed emotions and hard to explain feelings of the inconsistent world. Within this realm, my work varies from abstract to pop art, and I am continuously moving along the continuum between the two.

Recently I have reconnected with my love of design and have been exploring ways to connect art and design. This has allowed me to develop not only emotional connections with the pieces but a technical aspect about them too. 


My work reproduces familiar visual images, arranging them into a new conceptual design. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project my methodology is consistent. Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects they are linked by recurring formal concerns and through the subject matter. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work.
