Jaybo Monk is an urban wanderer, a traveler that moves in the space of that unfinished metropolis, that is the world, among memories, fragments, and traces abandoned in the urban landscape.

Jaybo celebrates many art movements in his work. Originally from France, he explores an artistic world that reveals emotional fragments of life in tune with Surrealism, Expressionism and Figurative art.

Urban subculture drives Jaybo’s approach to his enterprising artistic activities. As an active member of “Agents of Change,” he actively drives the culture and fashion magazine “Style and the Family Tunes” and the fashion label “Iriedaily.” Both enterprises are considered influential in Berlin’s youth culture.

Essentially, Jaybo Monk is a “rockstar” artist. There is something very special about trying to be open to the unknown and to the accidental, without prejudices but with amazement and curiosity.
