Inspired by his life-long dedication to street art and graffiti, Jared loves the experience of freedom that graffiti allows. “With graffiti,” Jared explains, “I am not confined to a canvas nor am I trapped inside a frame or box, I am just free to cover up a space, and I really love that aspect of it.” He enjoys the process of site-specific installations, creating the piece with these aspects of autonomy in mind. Mixed media is essential to the creative process for Jared as his art consists of a wide range of processes including installations, sculpture, photography and digital rendering. Using different materials such as vinyl, tape, electrical tape, and found objects, which are usually applied directly to the wall, most of Jared’s installation work deals with the same freedom he gets from graffiti.
