ABOUT ME

A Few Words About Me

What a lovely day!! There's a magazine stand right in the heart of Time Square (temporarily) that sells Juxtapoz Magazine. I finally saw the September Issue I was looking for, that featured my work from my recent solo show "As The Moon Draws Water." Thank you Distinction Gallery & Juxtapoz! That's not all, the store keepers gave me a pair of All Star kicks for free as part of their promotion. And what's sweet about the whole day?...my second son Rave, filming & editing this short clip.Peace Out in HD!Filmed on Samsung S6 EdgeEdited in Adobe Premier ProMusic credit: "Divinity" Porter Robinson

Jon Jaylo is a modern Filipino surrealist artist based in New York City. He is named as “The Enigma” because of his magnificent artworks and paintings powered by his concepts and ideas. His ideas were based on dreams with his usual models, his son.

 

Jon Jaylo’s floating, surreal dream world is constantly evolving in both idea and form together with the artist him- self. In Jon Jaylo’s dream world, surreal images that are equal parts playful and thought-provoking spill straight out of his subconscious, narrating a deep philosophy of thought through a threatrical rendition of brilliant colors and off-beat visual references to some fin de siècle time and place -- usually set in a quasi-Victorian alternate history setting, or ‘What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner’ what with the ever recurring bowler hats or top hats juxtaposed with pop fantasy references that delight the viewer.

 

Jon Jaylo discovered his potential in art when he was four years old. His passion in drawing made him famous through his works. He claims to be influenced by several known artists like Rene Magritte, Paul Delvaux, Gustav Klimt, Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dalí and William Bougereau. Jon states that he’s in- spired by dreams, daily occurrence, direct experience and some close friends’ stories.

Spending this lovely afternoon somewhere here in an island of Hawaii. I saw the bird looked at me and as soon as I offered a piece of bread, the bird flew and took it. Immediately made me smile. Glad my friend was able to capture this.Thank you.Music: "Bluestone Alley" by Congfei Wei
