JACOB KERRAY

Born: 1988 Dannenberg, Germany

Kerray's work draws on the visual cultures that surround his main interests – particularly football, pro wrestling and historical painting. Engaging with the hierarchies of culture, social distraction, mob mentality, myth, belief and taste. 

Usually paintings they are revisions of redundant fantasies. Observing the role of the deification, myth/media faith and power, their relationships with morality and attempts as a culture to achieve a consumable reified thread throughout history, that uses pictures and words as manipulative tools of magic for both ambivalent ‘good and evil’.
