Surreal Illustrated books in anthropomorphic style

 

British artist and illustrator Jonathan Wolstenholme as a surrealist and a lover for antique books will give life to his books and transform them to clever anthropomorphic images. A movement that will bring his art to a popular niche. See how set out to conquer your living room.

Jonathan Wolstenholme (born 1950) is a British artist and illustrator. He attended Purley Grammar School before graduating from Croydon Art College (1969-1972). Wolstenholme has been a successful freelance illustrator for many years, working for a number of major advertising agencies, publishers and a vast range of magazines. He has had three one-man shows in London and has exhibited at the Singer and Friedlander Exhibition several times, and also at the Discerning Eye Competition at the Mall Galleries, winning a prize in 2002. In 1997 an exhibition of Jonathan’s work was shown in New York at the ‘Works on Paper’ fair. Wolstenholme is particularly known for his amazingly detailed works deriving from a love of old books and of the paraphernalia associated with a bygone age whose hallmarks were finely skilled labour and exquisite craftsmanship in the production of all manner of objects.
