Paris-born Jeremy Baudouin is known as Jaybo Monk, who became active in the local graffiti culture. At first, he used stencils and later, freehand spray painting. After some travel and worldwide adventures, he landed in Berlin where he carried out the work of a graffiti writer, street actor and musician. Berlin remains his home.

Jaybo Monk is responsible for founding the streetwear label 'Irie Daily' and the cultural magazine 'Style.' His paintings reflect his varied background, incredible energy and eclectic nature, all of which are informed by his relationship to the urban subculture.
