Jack Weller

Jack Weller is an artist whose practice finds him trying to enjoy celebrating art with as many as possible, be it creating a wall mural at the beating heart of Sheffield Hallam’s university campus using student stories, or designing a car bonnet for Mercedes-Benz to grab the attention of passers-by. Primarily a painter, he regularly exercises onto new surfaces in his ‘Brit-Pop expressionist’ style, however, he has more recently found himself becoming more multidisciplinary, which mirrors his interest in our ever-changing vocabulary.
With the need to create more symbols every day to create a short hand for new advances in technology being every pressing, giving a voice to things that some may see as irrelevant, such as drawing an accidental screenshot, or creating a portable art studio for closed down schools.
