Karl Addison & James Bullough is a creative partnership known as “JBAK” have blended their contrasting styles into a mashup of antonyms: realism vs. illustrative, expressive vs. precise, hard vs. soft, black vs. a spectrum. The pair seeks desirable locations paying close attention to the space and the people that live and work within it.

Their intent is to integrate their art into the existing environment, creating harmony, balance and adding life. Together, JBAK create large-scale murals, which highlight their differing design aesthetics while at the same time, reaching a common goal—to give people a reason to look up, around, and beyond themselves. Originally from Baltimore and Seattle, the two currently live and work in Berlin.
