Trained as an architect and clearly influenced by cartoons, graffiti and Keith Haring, Jeremyville is a comic style illustrator, product designer, painter, customization artist, animator and one of the most prolific nu pop art artists around.
Jeremyville is simultaneously an artist, a project and a brand. Jeremy Andrew, the Australian artist behind Jeremyville, splits his time between his studios in NYC and Sydney. His creativity comes from a true passion for illustration, applied through a process of exchanges and interactions with a wide range of productive and artistic realities. Depending on the time of day and his mood, he writes books, designs toys, creates poppy animations, paints 70’s psychedelic murals or produces cartoon art goodies and wanna-haves for his Jeremyville label and store.
Known for his intelligent sense of humor, Jeremy Andrews explained in an interview that his illustration art is in the first place a state of mind. “Something others can relate to. It's not for everybody, just those who really get it. Originality and pushing the boundaries is always something that has been important to me. When I draw I sort of switch off my thoughts and let the pen flow across that page. That gives the best results and is a lot more true to what is happening inside me. I hope that others can make that connection too.”
