Free-Spirited Artist | Storytelling with Comic Books and Paintings
JAG LALL ART
Jag Lall is a free-spirited artist with a freedom in how he portrays his thoughts and feelings into art form. His expressive paintings have touched on several socially conscious topics which display his great passion and drive to use his art as a means to raise awareness and make an impact in society.
Having gone through an artistic journey ranging book cover design to illustrating storyboards and concept art for short films such as 'God is Dead' (which debuted at Cannes Film Festival 2011), Jag found his true expression through realising his dream in creating and illustrating comic books.
Jag is a storyteller with his artwork and it is through the comic book medium with its merge of narrative and illustrations which provides the perfect platform for his message. He wrote and illustrated the anti-racism graphic novel 'Death's Door: Ignorance Likes Company' which was supported by the United Nations Association of Canada. The book itself has been one of the few graphic novels to be used in schools both in England and Canada and was also adapted into a school theatre production in Ontario, Canada. Recently, his second graphic novel '1400' also has had an impact in communities and created discussion and emotion.
Outside the art industry, Lall has also given his time and skills to charititable organisations such as The Prince's Trust, United Sikhs and Think Equal, creating artwork to make a difference and to help others.
From exhibiting canvas paintings at City Hall, London to creating a live painting at the Royal Society of Art, Jag Lall's artwork is constantly bringing emotion, discussion and intrigue through both comic books and paintings.
