Joseph Ari Aloi graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 1994 armed with dozens of sketchbooks, self-described ADD, a set of tattoo implements and a headful of eye-popping mythologies inspired variously by Star Wars, Sanskrit calligraphy, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jackson Pollock and Viking iconography. Working as a tattoo artist, Aloi (aka JK5) propagated his ornate letterforms by word of mouth, forearm, back and bicep, then expanded into fine art, product design and advertising assignments for clients like Nike, Alife, kidrobot and Wieden + Kennedy. All along the way, Aloi documented his creative process in the pages of color-drenched sketchbooks crammed with doodles, rough drafts, prototypes and stream-of-consciousness typography.
