Texting back and forth with Yung Jake
Yung Jake showcased two of his pieces at the Steve Turner Contemporary booth inside of UNTITLED, a private gallery featuring over 200 artists, situated directly on the sands of Miami Beach. An artist and rapper who’s been getting a lot of buzz, it was Yung Jake’s first time showcasing his work at Art Basel, but certainly not his last. He’s currently collaborating with some well known names in the music industry, coming up with some surprises that you’re sure to hear about soon. Self proclaimed as "born on the Internet in 2011", technology is a definite theme throughout his work. He granted us an interview – but only through text.
