Jake Ross Art With Style

Jake is known for his characteristic yin-yang style where soft colours encounter dark traditional lines and elements.

His art encourages a “two-way conversation between the artist and the viewer whilst contrasting life and death,” says Jake.

There’s a timeless quality to his playful, quirky yet contemplative work, which is inspired by the Australian mystique, diverse landscape and his undying love for surf culture.

Embracing a multimedia approach, Jake shows he can tell his stories in a variety of mediums from fine brushes to iPads.

Jake has left his mark in large scale murals, skate ramps, exclusive canvas pieces and limited edition prints.
