Royal Jarmon's paintings exaggerate perspectives and forms, while distorting commercial ordinary objects. By saturating colours he creates a vibrant alteration of a flattened reality. This spatial perspective depicts social culture, consumption and leisure, as popular expressions of everyday life.
“I love using my hands. I think my paintings feel like sculptures because I'm really interested in the dynamics of space.” - Royal Jarmon
His paintings shift back and forth between realism and psychedelia. By blending these two contradictory elements, the abstracted objects potrayed in his paintings seem explosive.
Royal Jarmon (b. Sacramento, 1986) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Jarmon has spent years educating himself on art history, painting and developing his practice. His works have been included in shows at The Hole, NYC and Castor Gallery, LA.
