About Jonathan Chapman

My first solo adventures introduced me to the silent Hopper-esque landscapes of New England, gathering photographs and sketches which I brought back to the studio to inspire new canvases. From that point on I always made time to visit new places (unchartered for me at least) to seek out fresh inspiration. Whether that's historic sites around the UK, Europe or beyond.
I try to bring a fresh perspective and a bold palette of colour to the landmarks people may already know, occasionally discovering something new. I found myself mixing a painterly approach with the bold ink outlines and graphic details of my boyhood graphic novels. Just like Tintin, I enjoy the sense of wonder and adventure new horizons can bring.
