Jai Raphael is a self-taught artist, predominantly learning through trial and error. In 2013 he began painting with close friend and artist Fergus Dupleix, and this was Raphael’s first step of a journey to pursue painting with a view towards one day exhibiting his works. Dupleix was an integral figure in Raphael’s development and helped to open the door for his first group exhibition.
Raphael completed a visual arts degree and illustration certificate before beginning a tattoo apprenticeship in late 2002. He is currently a full-time tattoo artist and owner of Leviathan tattoo gallery in Melbourne.
