Jonathan Yeo is one of the most highly regarded and innovative portrait painters working in Britain (or, indeed, anywhere) today... Renowned for his distinctive, highly figurative canvases and striking collages, he employs a range of media and techniques to create a diverse body of work that expands the traditional parameters of portraiture. His ongoing innovations in theme and narrative and his engagement with society continue to challenge the genre of portraiture and reinvigorate it for the present era.
