Tribalism - The Sacred Art of Jason O’Connor
To some, it’s all just tribal but
to me, it’s part of my life and travels. To others it’s
broken down into sub categories like Neo-expressionist and
Primitivism. It includes geometry, pointillism, henna style,
Polynesian, Melanesian, mixed with text and cool stuff. I
am an artist that works in many mediums and my heros are Paul
Gauguin, Risk Rock, Keith Haring, Shepard Fairy, Jean-Michel
Basquiat and all of my family at AK.
Urban Tribalism is my original style of art.
What I create is what makes me thrive. An avid skateboarder,
I am influenced by graffiti culture, ancient ruins, world
cultures, tattoos, and mysticism. Making new iconic imagery
through sacred designs is my voice. To some it’s all
just “tribal”. Urban Tribalism is what Jay calls
his art and it’s a mix of global cultural art and modern
I started my art career 24 years ago as the street artist
for our skateboarding crew Team Sacrifice. Now I make paintings
and designs for different things.
All human cultures have one important thing
in common; we all huddle together in our caves when the shit
really goes down.
Make time to learn from others ideologies, and
Many thanks for stopping by my
home on the internet.
