Jon Jaylo

Jon Jaylo's artworks play around a parallel dream world in where everything is floating surreal and dancing in a contained universe inspired by poetry. His technical depictions are often varying in display and style, as if he himself is never content with the present stature of his works. They are constantly evolving in both idea and form, gradually maturing together with the artist himself. Scaling this balance, narrating a massively deep philosophy of thought through a theatrical rendition of intensely brilliant colors that seem to amuse its audience and present a status of intellectual complacency. Like dreams that reflect a reversed mirror of man's desires and fantasies, his works are merely manifestations of knowledge, the metaphysics of his own philosophy, and the resolving of experiences behind and even far beyond it.


In the big picture, the artist's works are masked and laced with a dream-like feel, very inviting, yet when you go inside, there is always a puzzle to be solved. His works are not just depictions of visual aesthetics. They are inspired by dreams, daily occurrences, direct experiences and sometimes the stories of close friends. What captures the viewers attention, is his works that are astounding, contemplative, glimpses into someone else's psyche. This is the wonder of his art, like any good story, he allows everyone to bring his or her own interpretation to the painting. Jon is great at opening up the viewer's 'soul' so to speak.


Jaylo's works are not just depictions of visual aesthetics. His works are a research on life itself and the enigma of thought beneath it.


His works have been displayed at Strychnin Gallery Berlin, in Italy, Korea, USA, Sothebys Auctions at Hongkong & Taiwan, Artesan Gallery Singapore, West Gallery & Ayala Museum Philippines.
