Having grown up in a conservative Texas community, I try to incorporate my youthful idealism and religiosity into my artwork. However, my worldview is slightly more cynical now and void of those religious beliefs. While my morality and empathy continue to guide my life, I realize that all human beings, including myself, are self-centered. While in Sunday school I learned about the "deadliness" of lust, gluttony, greed and the other deadly sins, yet I have come to believe that these sins are natural urges present in everyone. My art reflects my journey to adulthood and explores these issues of sin and idealism. The figures in my artwork travel in the sheltered environment I lived in as a kid, but perceive it as the American West, an undiscovered and untouched wilderness. As they move endlessly forward, they constantly compete and struggle for dominance. They live in the wild, yet exist in a domestic environment already developed and deteriorating. As I age and deal with the realities of human behavior, I cannot help but continue to connect with the childhood nostalgia that brought me comfort and a sense of hope, security, and pride.







Jonathan Yeo

Jonathan Yeo




Jonathan Yeo (b 1970) is a British artist specialising in portraiture and collage. He is represented by Eleven in London and Lazarides worldwide. He didn’t go to art school but took up painting while recovering from Hodgkins Disease in his early 20s. He became known as a contemporary portraitist in the late 1990s, exhibiting frequently at the the National Portrait Gallery . His best known work includes a world weary Tony Blair painted at the very end of his premiership, an iconic painting of Erin O’Connor which was used widely to advertise the NPG and now familiar images of Prince Philip, Dennis Hopper and Grayson Perry.

After a presidential commission was cancelled, Yeo instead made a collage of George W Bush which was unveiled at Lazarides Gallery, London, in 2007. Made entirely from pornographic magazines, it marked a new direction in his work, and subsequent subjects to receive the collage treatment include Hugh Heffner, Mary Whitehouse , Wyndham Lewis, Lucian Freud and Paris Hilton . The exhibition "Blue Period" in 2008 included nudes as well as portraits made the same way, and there have been subsequent shows in London, New York, Bethlehem and Walsall.

Further painting and collage shows are planned for Europe and America between now and the end of 2010. We will try to keep the news page updated as they happen.

Yeo is married to former journalist Shebah Ronay and they have 2 daughters. He lives and works in London.
