JON CAMPBELL

Renowned for his pop-inspired, witty and compelling DIY suburban art, Jon Cambpell’s work revolves around the simple act of sampling words and images from the everyday world around him and making meaning from them. As an artist and musician, music informs his art practice and vice-versa—and it’s fair to say that a rock ’n’ roll vibe emanates from his work. Campbell’s work has a sense of humour and critical optimism; if it were a song perhaps it would be late-Beatles sampled by Hank Williams.
