"When he was starting fifteen years ago, I was struck by the strength
and visceral quality of Jo's paintings. They seem to connect to
Expressionism, Art Brut, Basquiat and the Graffiti movement. I
remember encouraging him to take the painting seriously and it has
been great to watch its evolution. Jo is a really unusual,
interesting and talented artist in music and art".
"What I see is a vigorous, layered, expressionistic abstract sprawl, with a Basquiat-like, graffiti-esque urban edge and wild lashings of outsider primitivism".
