About

Jamin, born in Sydney in 1976, lives and works in Hobart, Tasmania. Jamin’s artistic practice extends from gallery based paintings and installations through to murals, street art and commissioned interiors. Through his work, Jamin explores process based painting, political and social issues, absurdity, and the general masquerade of visual culture.
