Jam Sutton (b. 1986) is a British visual artist with a BA first class honours degree. Jam is from a new generation of creatives that break away from boundaries of traditional visual communication. Not limited to one avenue of artistic expression, his work spans various mediums from photography, film, technology, sculpture and fashion. Known internationally for collaborations with musicians such as Pharrell Williams, Azealia Banks, Steve Aoki, Jam fuses his passion for contemporary culture with visual artwork. Jam works and resides in the UK.
Jam’s line of wearable art ‘This Is Not Clothing’ is stocked in some of the world’s best shops, including Colette, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols & Comme des Garçons Trading Museum.
Inspired by pop culture and classical art, Jam’s work is a collision of colour, culture and hyper-reality. In his recent work, Jam explores classical aesthetics, from ancient Greek sculpture to baroque Italian painting. The work juxtaposes contemporary culture and historic ideology, utilising modern image making practices and technology to highlight changes and similarities in today’s society.
His work has been exhibited and displayed worldwide, from electronic billboards in Times Square, NY to the ICA in London. He studied Graphic Design at Coventry University and joined Caviar in 2013
