Introducing Melbourne based artist Jessirose Streker

Name, occupation / What you do for $ / What you do creatively ?

My name is Jessirose Streker, I work for a removalist company, and I make a little extra cash painting portraits.


Where do you live atm / Where do you call home / Where do you dream to live ?

I live in Melbourne. I grew up in a middle class family in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Home is wherever i’m paying rent. I like to keep my fantasies to myself.


What is it that interests you about art ?

I like art because it’s like a language that I understand but I didn’t have to go to class to learn it. Skool sux.


What are you working on atm ?

Right now I have a selection of portraits on the walls at Milly Sleeping in Carlton. The exhibition is called ‘Not For Our Own But Others Good’, which is an english translation of the latin, ‘Non Nobis, Sed Omnibus’, which was written on the breast pocket of my school blazer. It is a collection of the portraits I haven’t sold- some are really good.


What was the inspo behind your work ?

My inspirations are pretty self explanatory.


Whose instagram is your favorite atm ?

My favourite instagrams are whatfranwore and ppiffaw.
