Jonjo Elliott is a UK based contemporary artist who focuses his practise on the depiction of still life scenes by making paintings which cross the boundary between abstract and representational art. Through the use of rich colours, drips, mark making and sketchy lines his work focuses on the exploration of painting as a process.
His influences come from flashes of personal history and memory but are firmly fixed in the present. Emotion and connection with self and nature create canvas based conversations between the artist and his past.
His exhibitions have featured immersive visitor experiences including a working skatepark built within the gallery space, large scale still life paintings which can be walked in to and a series of abandoned agricultural buildings transported and installed in the gallery. His exploration of painting and the path it can take alongside site specific and gallery based installations, forms the main focus of his drive to create.
Having earned a first class honours degree from De Montfort University he now works from a self built studio near his home in the UK.
Jonjo's work is collected internationally and is held in private collections in London, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
