My name is Jonathan Tarry, I started creating art work when I went to an art group for people with mental health issues in 2017.
I am a card carrying surrealist. I’m inspired the things around me, urban spaces, scraps of overheard conversation, found objects on the street and Tattoo culture.
My work started on canvas and developed into semi-automatic drawing. Whilst I still work on the occasional canvas my work now tends to be on paper in the style you can see.
There are hidden messages in my work (you will often see fingers)
When asked what my art means i simply say just look closely and see what emerges from the shapes, fingers, faces or just patterns.
I have exhibited around the country and also in Paris.
I also do 3D work, ceramics, and assemblages out of found objects.
I hope to continue making art, it is nice to get some recognition.
