Jana & JS are an Austrian / French artist couple who’s dynamic work can be found both in the urban and gallery space. Their work is created from their joint passion for photography and the urban aesthetic. Inspired by the city, playing with portraiture and texture, the duo have a truly unique style using the stencil technique to create their images and working exclusively with their own photos.
It is their photographic practice that leads them to choose the stencil technique, ideal for making works of extreme minutiae from their own photographs, on wood and recycled materials. It is this use of recycled materials as their backdrops which has become their signature style. Combining their modern portraits with often organic or found backdrops creating a beautiful juxtaposition of textures.
