Jealous Needs You

Jealous North

24 Aug 2022 — 11 Sep 2022

Following a successful opening at our Jealous East, Jealous North is proud to present Jealous Needs You (JNY) for its second instalment this year.

This project is back for the first time since 2018, in its seventh iteration since the project began. Jealous Needs You is an open submission process first created in 2011 where artists of all styles and mediums across the globe are encouraged to submit their designs for consideration by the Jealous team. JNY provides a platform for emerging and established artists to showcase their work to a new audience and transform their practice into screenprints. 
We cannot deny that the wait has been long, from 2020 when the brief was set and submissions were opened, to July this year when the amazing works were finally exhibited - all 21 selected winners have waited patiently to showcase their spectacular designs.
This exhibition will showcase the final selection of exceptional prints from the diverse and impressive submissions received. Each submission has been transformed into a screenprint, printed in the Jealous Print Studios. The brief of the project allowed artists to have creative freedom but were ultimately chosen because their designs could be transformed by printing techniques.
This year’s brief was to create a monochromatic artwork which could be screenprinted using just black and white ink and an optional translucent varnish layer. The artists have tackled this ambitious brief with truly fantastic results, offering collectors the opportunity to purchase works from both up-and-coming and established artists. From typographic prints, detailed illustrations, geometric works and photography the selection of this year's artwork is sure to entice every viewer.
