ARTIST + PRINTMAKER

Jonathan Lawes studied at Leeds Arts University, UK, and graduated with a Ba(Hons) in Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design in 2009.

After spending the best part of a decade in Berlin, Jonathan has recently relocated to Peckham, south east London. He divides his time between working as an artist and designing for a variety of interior clients.

Jonathan creates prints with a distinctly graphic edge, reflecting his love of geometry, shape, and pattern. Working in a loose, organic way, abstract compositions are formed and ultimately develop as his printing process evolves. He has a keen eye for colour and layering techniques, masking some areas off while revealing flashes of intense colour in others.
