Auspicious Victory in Sanskrit is Jaya Mangalam. This is also my given name (hippy parents FTW). I was raised in bonnie Scotland, schooled in the US and London, with lengthy intermissions in India. I am now lucky enough to live in the South Island of Aotearoa – land of the long white cloud, otherwise known as New Zealand.
I have been creating art as far back as I can remember. It's a vital part of my identity. Professionally I became a graphic designer and had a ball designing posters and what not for the entertainment industry in London. Then I decided to do my own thing. I started out with a skateboard and snowboard fashion label called Gifted Apparel back in the 2000's. Feeling nostalgic I have decided to reprise some of those designs and in turn create new ones for this store.
I'm inspired and informed by a diverse range of artists such as Banksy, Shepard Fairey and Basquiat to local contemporary artists. As such I like to express myself in an eclectic mix of styles and mediums. From screen prints and stencil paintings to photography, hand drawn artworks and 3D printed works.
I love creating and am lucky enough to design for clients around the world. Check out my design portfolio here: portfolio.jayagibson.com
