Jules Hancock, 

       b.1985, is a Western Australian visual artist, revered for his dynamic and versatile approach to art, blending various artistic expressions into his work with a poignant exploration of the human condition. His ability to convey deep philosophical concepts through the medium of visual art places him amongst the most introspective and impactful artists within the sphere. His work is a testament to the enduring power of art to explore, question, and illuminate the complexities of the pursuit of meaning in a world of endless suffering


His oeuvre reflects a deep reverence for the likes of Van Dyke and Hieronymus Bosch, intertwined with the bold, significant strokes of Francis Bacon. Moreover, Hancock draws profound inspiration from his hero artists, notably the emotive intensity of Edvard Munch, the raw expressiveness of Egon Schiele, and the intricate subtleties of Guglielmo Castelli. This eclectic blend of influences, ranging from the historic to the avant-garde, imbues his work with a rich tapestry of styles and themes, making it a resonant echo of the past and a vivid portrayal of the present.

What sets Hancock apart is his ability to encapsulate the intangible and often elusive nature of the human psyche. His art does not shy away from the complexities and contradictions that characterise the search for meaning. Instead, it embraces them, offering viewers a mirror to reflect upon their own experiences and beliefs. The existential themes in his work resonate with a universal audience, providing a canvas for introspection and contemplation.

 His haunting portrayal of monsters as personal demons and ethereal depictions of human figures traverse the spectrum of existentialism and push through to the quest for meaning. This introspective approach offers a refreshing perspective in contemporary art, making his work a powerful tool for exploring and understanding deeper aspects of the human psyche. Hancock's art resonates universally to those who are not afraid to ‘see’, providing a reflective mirror for viewers to contemplate their own experiences, values, understandings and beliefs.

Hancock’s artistic practice is not limited to traditional galleries, nor a single medium, but extends to innovative collaborations and experiences that blend visual art with other forms of expression, from music, to luxury motor cars, from painting to sculpture, from artist’s books to printmaking.

A notable example is Hancock’s participation in the multidisciplinary concert "Bloom" in 2022. This event showcased his painting techniqe in real time, centred on floral imagery, alongside chamber music and botanical arrangments, highlighting his ability to merge visual artistry with other artistic forms, enhancing the immersive experience of his work​​.

Hancock collaborated with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, in a bespoke live painting experience, which stands out as a significant achievement. This collaboration, where art and automotive excellence converged, saw Hancock creating an abstract art piece live, inspired by the timeless elegance of Rolls-Royce. This event not only showcased his artistic talent but also his ability to capture the essence of luxury and sophistication synonymous with the Rolls-Royce brand. The guests at this event received smaller original bespoke art works as keepsakes, further extending the reach and impact of his art​​.

These varied collaborations and exhibitions demonstrate Hancock's broad appeal and his skill in adapting his art to different contexts and themes​​. Creating artwork for musicians and bands for spotify & record covers.
