Yung Jake received his BFA from California Institute of the Arts (Cal Arts) in 2012. Both a visual artist and a rapper, he has gained notable recognition through his 2011 video of “Datamosh,” which was screened in New York, Chicago and Amsterdam, and through “E.m-bed.de/d,” a music video experience that takes over the viewer's browser with virtual visuals and insider art lingo. Both videos were also featured at the Sundance Film Festival in the New Frontier Story Lab, in 2012 and 2013. His conceptual work and paintings have been shown at Tripoli Gallery and The Fireplace Project on the East End, among others. Yung Jake was named “Breakout Art Star in LA Weekly in 2013 and #4 of “Ten Rappers Who’ve Dipped Their Toes In the Art World’s Water” in The Huffington Post in 2014. His most recent video “Unfollow” (2014) premiered at MOCA in Los Angeles. He currently lives and works in California.
