Jonathan Lawes is an artist and designer based in south east London, experimenting predominantly with the silkscreen printing process.
Jonathan graduated from Leeds Arts University in 2009 with a BA in Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern Design, before moving abroad and spending the best part of a decade living and working in Berlin. In 2018 he relocated back to the UK and began developing his practice further.
Jonathan creates prints with a distinctly graphic edge, reflecting his love of geometry, shape, and pattern. He has a keen eye for nuance and layering, paying close attention to colour and detail. Abstract compositions are formed organically and develop over time due to his genuine enthusiasm for, and evolution of, the printing process.
Jonathan has exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally and has worked with an extensive list of clients including the likes of COS, The Conran Shop, Gandia Blasco, Petit-Pli, John Lewis, and Hamilton & Hare.
