Graffiti/Mural artist JEKS is a pioneering member of North Carolina’s burgeoning street-art scene. Starting as a graffiti artist in the mid 90’s, JEKS’ love for the aerosol medium has blossomed into a self- taught mastery of the spray can which few artists possess. Over the past 5 years he has made a name for himself globally with his jaw-dropping, hyper-realistic, large format murals. An accomplished portraitist, JEKS’ portraits of artists and pop culture icons have become beloved cultural landmarks in the cities where they are installed.
