Artist & Printmaker
Born in South Africa and now living in Melbourne, Jason Jegels is an emerging artist who is focused on creating work that engages with social and political themes. Mainly working with printed matter and drawing, his work seeks to use contemporary events as a catalyst for image making.
"The type of work I create is focused on exploring the intersection of ideology and society. I seek to reach people through visual appeal and shock, the juxtaposition of these two elements reflect how I see the world, as a balance of violence and beauty."
The Abominable Press has one focus, that is to cause moral outrage. The methodology behind the Press is formed as a further exploration of Jason Jegels' practice, resulting in the production of consumable visual outrage.
