Jason Martin was born at Jersey, Channel Islands, UK in 1970. He went to Chelsea School of Art in 1989-1990, later he gained BA in Goldsmiths College, London in 1990-1993. Jason Martin lives and works in London.
When husband and wife art/design duo Jason and Sharon Gale (Quite British Accent) began working together, someone told them that sport had no place in art. Rather than take heed, the couple produce all their work using the visual vocabulary of sporting culture. Their latest collection, exhibited recently at Core at Nolias Gallery, includes a series of textile slogans appliquéd onto vintage football shirts. The work satirises the sport-in-art argument and likens popular culture heroes to sporting heroes.
I literally don’t know how to describe this other than the title. Jason Shron is clearly a very talented and passionate individual. He made a full size functioning Via Rail train in his basement. If you’ve ever been on one this video will leave you in awe.
We just got a heads up that kick-ass artist and designer Jason Freeny and saying he just came out with new limited edition key-chain toys entitled “CAPSLs”. These gizmos allow you do store a little treat inside and they’re also super-funky to sport around. They’re a edition of only 300 so get them while you can at JailBreak Toys.
Jason de Caires Taylor’s underwater figure sculptures are absolutely unreal. How frickin’ long would each installation take?! Yeesh. Either way, it’s a treat for our eyes. Beautiful video after the jump to boot.
