Erica, Murus Curator “Jonathan’s collaged monoprints are bold, fun and uplifting. I love the way he builds pattern through layers and shape, creating one image that emerges. Every shape is unique and I love the forms Jonathan creates together with his beautiful palettes.”

Jonathan Lawes

Jonathan Lawes is a printmaker and collage artist based in South East London. He studied Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern Design at Leeds Arts University.
What inspires your work as an artist? I gain inspiration from a variety of different elements, it really is hard to pinpoint it to one specific thing. I am drawn to architectural forms and bold, graphic shapes. One main part of my practice is my use of colour. My eye is constantly working when I am out and about, finding new and exciting combinations to provide that big dose of colour.
Who are your biggest influences? Like with inspiration, inspiration always comes from a wide range of different artists and designers. Going back, I'd have to say Henri Matisse was a big influence on me growing up. Also artists like Mark Rothko and Emil Nolde for their use of colour. Nowadays there really is too many to choose from - I really love the works on Anna Mac, a painter based in Suffolk.
What does your work mean to you? My work is all about aesthetics and creating things that are pleasing on the eye. This can come from my use of composition or colour combinations.
What techniques do you use? I am a screen printer by trade so that's my go-to medium. I've tried other printing techniques in the past, but there is just something so appealing about the silkscreen process that I really do love. For theses exclusive pieces I have done for Murus I have experimented with some collage, which is something that I have always been fond of. Printing onto newsprint and collaging them together creates really organic, free forms and adds an extra element of texture to my work.
