In his boldly coloured paintings, Jonjo Elliott combines a graphic style with abstract elements, references from art history, dreams and memories from his life, creating works which feature interiors, portraits, landscapes and still life. Plants play a large role in each image offering glimpses of life and growth in a richly coloured world. Echoing the digital representation of real life through hyper vivid colour and art historical influences, these works speak of the time we live in and the spaces we inhabit. Each work offers a scene which could be walked into, familiar yet fantastical, a growing collection of stories which the artist translates through a language of visual representation.


Born in Leicester, Jonjo started sketching at a very early age, losing himself in the process of depicting his surroundings. He received a First class BA honours degree in fine art from De Montfort University in 2016 before setting up his own studio near his home where he works from today.



Jonjo's artistic history includes solo exhibitions in LA and group shows in London, Florida, NYC, Palm Springs and Leicester. His work sits in collections in Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand, UK and has been featured in major NETFLIX television shows.
