Jonathan W Gemmell is an Australian artist based in Melbourne who started painting at the early age of five where he took an art class in Warrandyte, along the Yarra River. He now proudly exhibits across Australia.

 

Jonathan is best known for his signature abstract style where he reimagines landscapes, often working in very large scale. He has been commissioned to paint a number of murals and he incorporates a variety of media to his work, although he favours acrylic, a material that he has found most suitable to his practice.

 

 

Inspired by the outdoors, be it the ocean or the Australian outback where he regularly goes hiking, Jonathan’s works are both vibrant and meditative, evoking a moment of calm in the midst of nature, away from the urban noise. Jonathan also draws inspiration from the flora and the gardens that surround him and that he incorporates painstakingly into his highly elaborate canvases.

 

Although Jonathan’s work is eminently abstract, he deftly applies a broad array of techniques, colours, and media that results in a rich body of work with one work more captivating than the other. 

"When I'm in the studio its like the world stops, there's nothing but myself and my painting"
