Jorit Agoch comes from Italy and is renown for his extremely photorealistic human face portraits. He uses spray paint and oil paint and is extremely excited to come to Asia and to work in the studios on Asian portraits over the next few weeks.
Jorit Agoch is a graffiti artist from Naples, Italy, who grew up with graffiti as an adolescent. Then, instead of architecture, he moved on to study at the Fine Arts Academy of Naples to develop his canvas and brushwork skills.
For over 10 years, he has since refined his ability to create hyperrealistic portraits of the human face, highlighting human and cultural diversity from various parts of the globe. He has placed his large murals across five continents and
is now arriving to Asia for the first time. He looks forward to portraying the culture and physiognomy of the East in his upcoming canvas works here at Jardin Orange.
The two stripes on the face he paints allude to his time living in sub-Saharan Africa in 2005 and the rites of passages he witnessed there.
His philosophy when applying these marks to all of his subjects point to his belief that all differences (including race, gender, religion, social class) do not overcome the similarities that we all, as human beings, share in common. He has often used his art to draw attention to social problems in various parts of the world and to bring attention to others who are struggling in life.
