JAYSON LILLEY

Contemporary artist, Jayson Lilley, has worked at the forefront of printmaking for many years. His approach to the modern landscape is unique and fresh, in both technique and materials.

Lilley’s work is known for its urban and architectural focus, zooming in on familiar landmarks and reproducing iconic vistas and structures from the metropolis. His innovative printmaking practice combines silkscreen, painting and collage techniques to construct vibrant scenes that are always accompanied by expansive skies and which play on salience and colour. Lilley’s most recent collection explores some of London’s more natural vistas, as he contemplates the relationship between nature and the urban landscape. In these pieces, he combines silkscreen print with copper leaf and hand drawing to dramatic effect.


Lilley graduated from the University for the Creative Arts in 2000 with a First Class honours degree in Visual Communication. He had an award-winning career in design before focussing on his artwork, and his background in design is ever apparent in his visual style and methodology. He has exhibited widely across the UK and internationally. Recent accolades include being shortlisted for the Westmorland Landscape Prize 2019 and inclusion in the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition 2019. Lilley’s works are held in collections across the world including London, New York, Japan, Hong Kong and Moscow.

WALKING AROUND...

A brand new collection of limited edition work, which sees Lilley embrace the unexpected as he allows the materials to take centre stage. Here he departs from the reliable flat support of the paper to introduce texture to the surface, exploring loose applications and unplanned marks. In turn, he disrupts the clean, flat qualities of traditional screen printing and introduces raw lines, rough edges and a sense of life and movement; an unpredicatability that reflects the personality of the city. Featuring three dynamic new London scenes available in 50x50cm and a larger 70x70cm.

Screen print with metallic foil spray paint hand finished with acrylic paint and ink.
