London: Introducing Selection Committee Member Jonathan Yeo

We are thrilled to unveil our esteemed London Selection Committee. These members of a globally significant art community set the high standard of the fair, ensuring you can buy from our artists with the confidence that you are investing in the very best of emerging talent.

Second to join the committee is renowned portrait artist Jonathan Yeo.

British artist Jonathan Yeo (born 1970), lives and works in London and is internationally recognised for his portraiture.  He is known for his depictions of iconic figures including Dennis Hopper, Nicole Kidman, Damien Hirst, Malala Yousafzai, and Tony Blair, amongst others.

Rising to prominence in the 2000s as a contemporary portraitist, Yeo became renowned for his paintings of important cultural and political figures. Widely celebrated for both traditional and experimental figurative art, he has explored more conceptual themes in his plastic surgery series and porn collages. He is currently exploring the ways in which developing technology is shaping how we understand and create portraits.

Jonathan Yeo’s work can be found in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery, London, Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle, Royal Collection Trust, Clarence House, The Parliamentary Art Collection and The Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle, Denmark.

The Other Art Fair returns to London’s Old Truman Brewery on 5-8 October 2017. Join The Others to stay updated with the latest fair news.
