Jonathan Brier Figurative Artist

 

UK Figurative Artist & Oil Painter

Based in Wrexham, North Wales, Jonathan is a self-taught Realism based painter working to find a way of presenting his thoughts in an honest yet aesthetically alluring way. He creates evocative Oil Paintings of the human form in a Classic Figurative Tradition, coupled with a Contemporary twist, often with a subtle darkness present.
