Big Jeff

Big Jeff

“Art for me has been about expressing emotions I can’t explain another way. These paintings highlight my issues with barriers and hidden anxiety and mental health. How people see me is one thing - but internally I sometimes feel completely different. I use art as a way of expressing things that aren’t always easy to discuss.” Big Jeff

The aim of this work is to surprise and challenge the viewer. It is intended to instigate conversations.
