Grow up is a father and son collaborative, launched during ‘Lockdown 2020’.
Jack Blam and his father, Mark Blam, base their work on graphic art, typography, stencils, mixed media, fluorescent ink and profanity. “We’re inspired by the intense pressure on teenagers (and immature adults) to grow up and acknowledge the impact everyday life can have on mental well-being”.
Blam’s design work is on permanent display in the 20th Century collection at the V&A museum London. He has produced and exhibited works for London design festival, Design Museum and curated content for other events for the V&A shop.
Jack Blam began his professional career as an artist aged 14 when he contributed paintings for Art Car boot fair (December 2019), where his work was shown alongside many of his heroes.
