"I grew up in the surf/skate culture of Virginia Beach, with my mother and two younger brothers. it was a little tough, We moved every year, my mom held it together as My father suffered from addiction and was in and out of jail. but for the most part, we were happy. My brothers and I made our own fun with what we had. I became comfortable creating with whatever was around. Even now, all I need is a computer."
jiwa is a passionate activist, often using his work to raise awareness/relief for environmental and socio-political causes.
In Spring 2022, he raised $8000 for the Ukrainian war effort
with the interactive, social generative art project, f*ck putin. With ntent, he has planted ~2500 trees
and offset over 600% of the carbon footprint
of the ntent.art platform. In 2021, he walked over 100 miles in Minnesota with Indigenous leaders in protest of the Line3 oil pipeline. In 2020, he released BLMtv
for the Black Lives Matter movement, which was used as a creative educational resource in public middle schools in Washington DC. In 2018, he experienced a 7.0 earthquake in Indonesia. After joining local rescue teams, he shot photos of the aftermath. Back in the US, he held a photo exhibition as a disaster relief event, donating 100% of the proceeds to Indonesian families impacted by the earthquake.
