Jake Grewal

Overview

Themes of identity, love, loss, violence and adolescence are explored through a queer gaze, creating a dream-like reality-based in nature.

Jake Grewal lives and works in London. Grewal’s drawings bring together the language of Romanticism and his South Asian heritage to express autobiographical experiences. Themes of identity, love, loss, violence and adolescence are explored through a queer gaze, creating a dream-like reality-based in nature.


 Through this queer gaze, the figure of the male nude is reference repeatedly. Figures are exposed to the natural world which is often used allegorically to vocalise Grewal’s internal landscape.
