The flamboyant visual artist Jayo Tony belongs to the first wave of Dutch VJ’s who represents a colorful and energetic style, which amazes her audience in Holland and abroad. After graduating from the HKU and VjAcademy, she started lighting up the Amsterdam nightlife, and got involved in various cultural projects and events. So far, her swinging visuals have been the spectacle at Pride, 100 jaar Schiphol (Chengdu, China), Vincent op Vrijdag (Van Gogh Museum), Museumnacht, Het Boekenbal (Paradiso Amsterdam), Modeshow Rashid Assoui (Rai, Amsterdam).
Tony’s danceable work is fully appreciated when it fuses with music. Her visuals are a mix of short cuts from music videos and movies layered with controlled effects that fit the beat. Developing her expressive, graphic and energetic style throughout the years, have led to several VJ residencies at known Amsterdam based club nights (Jamrock, Zwarte Koffie, Edelwise). She toured with Lil Kleine and enchanted the India tent at Lowlands Festival 2016 and 2017. Her self-made installation with Jacqueline maatman ‘mapping bird’ beamed up the Amsterdam Paradiso during ADE.
