Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell is an accidental Artist. A warrior who trained Jiu-Jitsu for the majority of his life; teaching and doing seminars around the world. The transition from Warrior to Artist began while traveling in Nepal, where he acquired a near-fatal respiratory disease that changed his life.
No longer able to train martial arts, Corbell found strength in painting on vintage doors salvaged from local demolitions around his childhood home. The recovery experience accidentally launched his new life as an Artist. Corbell once said about this experience, "I learned that we often only express fragments of our totality, and that it is through the courage of imagination that we become free to truly express."
Corbell's recent creation, ICON, is a mixed-media series that celebrates the life and style of Sharon Tate in honor of the 40th anniversary of her passing. With the blessing of the Tate family, ICON showcases Sharon’s never before revealed wardrobe by designers such as Christian Dior, Thea Porter, Ossie Clark and Yves Saint Laurent. In his own words, "The ICON exhibition has been created to help facilitate understanding of the healing power of art to transform and create culture."
"Art can change the world, and everybody can live artfully." - Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell
