Much of Jarvis's inspiration originates from his time in the United States; studying abroad at the University of Miami and the subsequent road trip around the nation via the Greyhound bus service which recalled the romantic notion of Jack Kerouac's On the Road. He is currently working on an exhibition of his work that explores the themes of the normality of modern America.
Jarvis's work has primarily been focused on an obsessive need to depict the real from his early passion with drawing and now the oil paint medium. The range of artists who has affected him are those who have a strong background in the technical before moving onto the distinctive style; Gerhard Richter, David Hockney, Chuck Close, Vincent Van Gogh, and Piet Mondrian.
