Brisbane (by way of Sydney, London and Brighton) artist Jonathan Bentley, illustrates for both editorial and picture books. His subject matter is therefore quite varied, but a lovely looseness of line, offset with bold compositions and colour choices unites these diverse works.
The Courier Mail in Brisbane has published his images for over a decade, and with over 20 books for children to his name his portfolio is wide ranging and we find it fascinating that he covers both quite serious news stories as well as creating such uplifting and joyous picture book images.
We love the warmth in his his mixed media picture book illustrations - the character and lightness that he conveys with a masterful balance.
Please join us at 6PM Friday 19th August at Ludlow to discover more of Jonathan's work in Scapes.
