Jason Butler is a professional artist who lives and works in Jersey. He studied for his Foundation Course at Bristol Art College and at Cheltenham Art College for his Fine Art Degree. Jason has achieved considerable success in Jersey, winning and receiving notable commissions such as commemorating the Queens visit in 2001 for the Jersey Government and the Annual Portrait Commission for the Jersey Heritage Trust in 2009.
“Currently i am working on a new body of work with the concept focusing on the concept of human folly. Some of the work-in-progress can be seen within the ‘New Work’ album.”
“Over the past 6 years I have received many commissions of both adults and children. My main aim within the portraits, is to not only get a likeness, which is the minimum requirement, but also to ensure the painting is an autonomous object in it’s own right.”
Jason has had his work accepted into the British Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery, London three times, with his painting ‘The Rubbish Bin Men’ chosen for the invitations in 2009 whilst he was also on the three man shortlist for the BP Travel award.
