In this episode of Like Art, we meet artist, rapper and internet savant Yung Jake in Los Angeles. Jake defines himself as an artist “born on the internet,” and his work is heavily influenced by online fame, memes, and consumer culture, as he incorporates unpaid product placement in his videos and celebrity emoji portraits on his Instagram feed. Host Oz Woloshyn goes dress shopping with Jake, meets his creative persona Beer Jimmy, and engages Jake in an emoji sketching competition, while probing the secrets behind Jake’s mysterious creative process.
