Who is Joff and what do you do?
I am Joff and I keep busy.
How would you define your style or art?
Simple, raw, weathered and looks like its got a good story to tell.
What inspires your work?
Life experiences and tough times make you grow , learn and mature .I find my art often develops in these times the most as my paintings often have strong back stories and show alot of character . Music ! If I start painting and I am listening to a specific song that emulates the same emotion or mood that I want depict in the painting then I will often have that one song on repeat the entire time until I finish the painting.
What are you currently working on?
I have been doing alot of bigger wall pieces at the moment and collaborating with other artists to try push street art in my city. I am also currently working on an exhibition , illustrations for a writer, Clayton Truscott, in the states and my first Photographic series.
What advice would you give young creatives looking to do what you do?
Hmmm, stick to and adapt with your own style that makes you happy. Don’t be fickle and use “popular” styles to please onlookers , make your own art.
