Jonah Trople is a multidisciplinary artist and designer. His work is decidedly layered; A bold, playful, and deceptively simple aesthetic weaves together the ideas of magic and memory with the themes of the human condition, cosmic history, and place.
Through use of symbols and signifiers, Jonah illuminates a universal memory from the collective unconscious. Jonah’s visual vocabulary tells a story that invokes a sense of wonder and mystery referring to something ancient and ancestral.
While his themes are atavistic, his style is aesthetically influenced by the skateboarding and graffiti subcultures that surrounded him in his youth. In both his paintings and sculptures, Jonah employs techniques from his background as a sign painter and woodworker.
