Inspired by the mid-Eighties graffiti scene in New York, Jesse Grylls uses stencils and oil paint on loose canvas to achieve a vibrant, graphic aesthetic. Submerging numbers and letters under layers of striking colour, his work is deeply influenced by finding freedom within structure.
Grylls’ process is highly intuitive as he channels his feelings and current inspirations into each work. Reflecting the nuances of his mood, he uses bold colour combinations and intriguing textures to create a unique harmony.
Honour Among Thieves is an exhibition that allows Jesse to do what he does best and that is to express himself through his work. A young artist with boundless energy, seeing his world through an excitement of colourful layering and self expression.
Jesse Grylls graduated from Eton College in 2021 and has had solo shows in London and Switzerland.
