Pitok (Jay) is a visual artist based in Sydney’s inner west. Having graduated from UNSW Art & Design (formerly COFA), they have worked professionally as a graphic designer and have more recently began creating personal works using a variety of mediums including gouache, textiles, wood panels and print.

Through the imagery of rope bondage, and still life composition, their recent works, “The Ties That Bind” explores the reflective process of peeling off layers of identity, looking at the baggage we carry and making a conscious decision on what to let go of as we move towards a closer alignment with our authentic self.

The works contrast danger and beauty, restriction and support, pain and pleasure and generally how deeply interwoven our formative experiences are, both positive and traumatic.

Pitok draws inspiration from a variety of sources including, Australian modernist painters like Margaret Preston, Japanese woodblock prints, tattoo art, commercial packaging design and kink culture.
