Pep Rally Inc.

Pep Rally Inc. is a boutique creative agency founded by contemporary artists and illustrators, Jay Giroux and Josh Pearson.

“We contribute, collaborate, and execute to bring the story and vision to the surface through discussion and hand-made synthesis.” Pep Rally Inc. is very happy to be a part of the St. Pete Mural movement. Consequently, they said, “We jumped at the opportunity and were flattered to be part of such an impressive roster of artists,” says Pearson. “Noticing that we are the only Tampa artists in the festival, we wanted to show St. Pete what Pep Rally Inc. is about; Pulling all walks of people together through art.”

Jay speaks about what inspires his art, “I’m really interested in the free association between incidental gestures, moments that might happen on the street – a sticker that’s worn down or some beads creating a gesture on the ground. I take them as a reference point. In painting, I find myself gravitating toward things that are almost the opposite of what I do as a graphic designer. I like the defacement of something beautiful.”

Above all, they like to celebrate culture through art, while working in different media and brand strategy. Even more, they find inspiration from street art, hip hop, as well as skateboard culture. Pep Rally Inc. artwork is also in other locations of Tampa Bay, most noteworthy at Fodder & Shine and The Hyde Out. Furthermore, they loved being a part of a live screen-printing event at the 2015 MLB All-Star Bash in Cincinnati. Their work also strives to bring recognition and attention to the art world in all industries.
