Jaybo Monk - Germany

Jaybo Monk left his family home in the South of France at the age of 14 and moved to Kreuzberg, Berlin in the early Eighties. He became a graffiti artist, street actor and hip-hop musician. Since then, he has been exploring the creative world in myriad directions. Jaybo has been involved in fashion, founding the Irie Daily streetwear company. He also created a culture magazine called Style in the early 90’s. Both enterprises have been influential on Berlin’s youth culture and fashion community. Even today, urban subculture remains the driving force behind all of his artistic activities. Monk also is a member of the Agents of Change with artists Kofie, Derm, Remi/Rough, and many more.
