It's not been an easy ride for JPS but his talent and drive has proved he is one of the greatest street artists around
Jamie Paul Scanlon aka JPS is one of those annoyingly great artists (in a good way of course). Whether it’s a genius tongue-in-cheek pun or the perfect placement, his work constantly makes you ask the question ‘why didn’t I think of that’? As a result, he’s gained a large loyal following due to his work continually going viral.
His road to success hasn’t been an easy one but fortunately his strength and determination has culminated in a classic ‘boy done good’ story.
We got in touch with JPS for a chat to find out more about him and his work…

The balaclava-clad artist Mason Storm
Shy, modest, and introverted are words you wouldn’t associate with today’s spotlight artist Mason Storm.
