Meet our artists:
Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Jonas mixes strong references from his new home in Australia with his Scandinavian roots. In his colourful drawings, moose, polar bears, reindeers, seals and surfers cohabitate in a wonderful world. His traditional hand drawn illustrations are sometimes digitally coloured, resulting in a bold and expressive style. With this essence of vibrancy, Jonas’s freewheeling and unconventional take on everyday milieu has become his distinctive trademark.
Eloise Dörr is a London based artist. Her work primarily features playful characters who skate their way through various environments, curiosity and fun leading the way. Being a skateboarder herself, it felt only natural to show her love of the sport in her paintings. These characters can be seen as an on-going self portrait of her own skateboarding adventures.
Jono was born in Kingston, London in 1979, battling the reading and writing problems caused by Dyslexia Jono found himself turning to drawing as a means of expression from a very early age. Over the years since, Jono has continued to develop his own style by taking in aspects of his everyday life including environment, reality, dreams and relationships and portraying them through his paintings. Jono has had many life changing experiences and this is evident in his work. The use of symbols and letters combined with his character work help to represent people, places and feelings and help keep his work very personal as well as producing something unique to the viewer. After successful gallery showings around Europe as well as his recurrent and arresting style, make him one of the most recognised artists to emerge from the board culture.
