Some of Coney Island's archetypical characters travel endlessly on the Cyclone roller coaster enduring time and tide.
Faiyaz Jafri is an artist and film maker, born and raised in rural Holland of Dutch and Pakistani decent. Jafri's art explores Jungian archetypes in the modern world. In addition he searches for neo-archetypes in mass media and global popular culture. His work has an almost clinically engineered feel to it without becoming cold or soulless. It is this contrast between unnatural perfection and the fact that his work conveys a strong emotion that makes his work at times haunting but always strangely human. His work has been exhibited in the form of print, pantings, video installations, animations and life size sculptures all over the world. More on Jafri and his work can be found on his site bam-b.com and his blog.

I have always wanted to tell stories that could be read by anybody. In order to make my stories universally legible I choose themes and protagonists that are stereotypical and utilize a
concise visual language with a deep emotional undertone. My films and art explore and reinterpret Jungian archetypes in the modern world. In addition I search for neoarchetypes in mass media and global popular culture. An important neo-archetype is the Bambi character which to me has a seductive and an innocent side. This duality is a prominent theme in my work.
