jon bentley fine art

"My paintings come from the same place as my dreams and rarely have a rational explaination thus tending to ask more questions than provide answers"

I am an artist based in Bristol working in a variety of disciplines, ranging from sign making to fine art.

I have extensive experience of coordinating public art projects, public consultation, running workshops and liaising with architects, contractors and other artists.

Since joining the Mivart Artists Studios in East Bristol in 2004 I have been developing my fine art practice, mostly in oil painting and drawing but also experimenting with sculpture and installation. I have exhibited and sold work in Shrewsbury Museum, RWA, Mivart Open Studios, Bath Open Studios, Centre Space Bristol, Sherborne House, The View Gallery Bristol, The Cube Gallery Bristol, The Threadneedle Prize 2012 and 2013.
