Jonathon Bolitho

Jonathon Bolitho is an emerging artist currently studying at the College of Art & Design at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Jonathon applies layers of colorful paint fluidly and freely to the canvas, resulting in works that evoke impermanence and the ephemeral. For Jonathon, the work that goes into and the process of creating each artwork are integral aspects of the meaning of the finished painting. Because Jonathan understands the painting process as a meditation on a subject that is constantly changing, the artist never really views his works as ‘finished.’ In the artist’s own words: “Each painting is a collision of what is seen, and what is deeply felt.”
