Having completed a three year graphic design course at Middlesex Polytechnic, Jason joined the world’s leading broadcast brand design agency, London based LambieNairn. During his 13 years there, Jason worked his way up from Junior Designer to Head of Screen Design. In 2004 he became a freelance designer / director.
Over the last few years Jason has been developing a bold and contemporary style of figurative artworks. These artworks have been inspired by dance, the human form and by the pop artists of the 60’s, particularly Bridget Riley. Jason has always loved dance and been fascinated by the interpretation of sound in visual form “For me, movement and music, in unison, create a very powerful and emotional language. In fact, this is a theme that occurs often in my broadcast design work. I hope my static works capture some of this emotional and visual dynamic. My artworks have been created using a mixture of photographic and computer crafts honed over the last 20 years. My images have been realised as limited edition original silk screens. This results in a ‘human’ variation from print to print.”
These figurative prints show movement through Jason’s use of repeated linear designs. Not one print shares the same representation of the dynamic human form, showing a versatile demonstration of Jason’s unique printing method. Jason’s works not only focuses on dance and movement, but also evokes a kind of vibrant emotional response from his audience.
One of Jason’s most prestigious customers to date has been interior design specialist Linley. Jason’s awards include 9 Promax golds, Design Week Gold, D&AD silver and Royal Television Society Gold (BBC re-design). Jason won the People’s Prize (public vote) in the Surrey artists open competition.
