Joro Biography
Joro was born in 1966 in Hammersmith, West London and influenced by early the hip hop music scene, graffiti and the street culture that was everywhere during the early 1980s. He started his career after an apprenticeship in London's Hatton Garden jewellery district resulted in 10 years in the jewellery industry producing trinkets for beautiful people.A love of music led to Joro DJing at underground parties and clubs throughout London which progressed into managing the careers of music artists and DJs/producers. Many top 10 hits for his artists later, including 7 UK number 1's and Joro has now taken up working metal again, this time in a very original way, producing personalised, stylised images made from solid steel. He has made portraits for some of the World's most respected music artists as well as many private commissions.
