About | Jonathan Redmayne
Jonathan Redmayne is an abstract artist living and working in Sydney, Australia.
At the age of 14 he began painting walls and writing graffiti in the late 90s, He enjoyed the raw sense of adventure, self expressionism, exploration of style and collaborating with other artists, which proved to be instrumental in his transition into an ever evolving studio artist. In 2012 Jonathan graduated from the Catc Design School in Sydney, Australia. Jonathan’s work has been included and exhibited in art prizes and galleries throughout Australia and Europe. His body of work to date challenges the global consumerist culture. He only works with 100% recycled domestic acrylics from sustainable sources such as mis-tints and paint left out for local authority collections. Jonathan’s current post graffiti work is typified by vibrant colours layered with bold brutal lines forming fine liquid textures that cut and divide across the image leaving a trail reminiscent of beautiful decay.
An all over approach is applied with impeccable attention to detail.The centre is just as important as the edge and sides with vivid fluid colours and striking lines fight for survival creating a visual aesthetic that emotionally confronts the viewer.
