About

Mulele Jarvis:

New York, San Francisco and Tokyo — all have served as home to Mulele Jarvis at various lifepoints; and the distinct cultures in each of these cities has contributed to shaping his unique vision. Using elegant layerings of past, present and future, Mulele creates a temporal surrealism that gives visual form to the impact of mythos and memory on the urban experience in a multi-cultural world. “It’s all just grist for popular culture,” Mulele says. “There’s an obsession with American and Japanese film behind my work, shorn up by a plethora of music, a smattering of comics and truckload of Ramen.”
