Jacob Yikes, born Jacob Ryan, is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Ōtautahi, Christchurch. He has an extensive background in graffiti and large scale street based work and is a member of the DTR crew. Jacob has headlined and been involved in a number of street/mural art festivals over the years, including Rise, Spectrum, Paradox, South Sea Spray and Flare. As well as having a heavy presence in the street art scene, Jacob also has a diploma in fine arts and has been exhibiting works in several solo and group shows over the past decade. His studio-based work often portrays a more abstracted approach to his work with the use of expressive brushstrokes and a more in-depth look into his subconscious and visions.
