Jamie Paul Scanlon, aka JPS, is a British artist based in Germany who is making the streets more interesting one art piece at a time. The artist has his own distinctive style which often features characters from well-known video games and TV shows in his works, and is a pro at incorporating various environmental elements into his works, such as railings and drain covers.

In a recent interview with Bored Panda, Jamie said that even though he was into art since a young age, he grew up in an environment that held little opportunity. “Then a series of events and the murders of 2 close friends sent me down a twelve-year path of heavy drink and drug use,” revealed the artist. However, things would eventually change for the better.

Back in 2009, Jamie’s friend took him to see a Banksy museum show. “I loved the concept of using full-size stencils on walls. It planted the seed to face my addictions and I began self-teaching and hitting walls,” said the artist.

Jamie says that he hates the money and business side of art, and prefers to concentrate his energy on delivering new works to the world. “The problem is I find it difficult to give Banksy any credit for my creation these days because of the two things I found out the past couple of years: the proof I have of his team blackballing my career and blocking my media. Which is a pity,” revealed the artist.

“To me, a world without any art would be very dull, although there is no better artist than Mother Nature herself,” says Jamie. “Personally, it gave me a purpose and reason to live. I’m proud of how far I’ve come from the walking corpse I once was.”
