In his boldly coloured paintings, Jonjo Elliott combines a graphic style with abstract elements, references from art history and memories from his life to create works which feature interiors, portraits, landscapes and still lifes. Plants play a large role in each image offering glimpses of life and growth in a richly coloured but completely imagined world.
Born in Leicester, Elliott started sketching at a very early age, losing himself in the process of depicting his surroundings. He received a First class BA in fine art from De Montfort University before setting up his own studio near his home where he works from today.
Elliott’s exhibition 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 and the UK.
