Yung Jake was established on the Internet in 2011. He is best known for his rap videos that integrate the worlds of hip-hop, technology, social media and contemporary art. Datamosh (2011) parodied the trend in music video of datamoshing (a digital technique that distorts images) while playing to a contemporary digital art audience. In E.m-bed.de/d (2012), he commented on the pursuit of Internet fame. He has had three solo shows with Steve Turner and a solo project at the 2014 fair, Art Berlin Contemporary and Art Brussels (2016). His work has been screened at Sundance (2013) and he has performed in Los Angeles at the Hammer Museum, Redcat (2013), MOCA (2014) and at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in April 2016. He earned a BFA at CalArts in 2012.
