Jon Fox’s tightly packed scenes of mystical figures and their gruelling existential struggles are characterized by dynamic geometric structures, angular shapes and striking color. Born in Hereford, UK, Fox graduated in Fine Art Painting from the University of Brighton in 2004. A child of the 80s, he was initially attracted to Japanese and American cartoons, comics and computer games, along with hip hop and the graffiti styles that came with it.
Drawing on personal introspection, Fox juggles narrative and pictorial composition to produce vivid mindscapes, layered journeys in search of an underlying energy and balance.
“I guess my belief is that if you go far enough inside yourself as an individual, you reach a universal space that we all share and are connected to. I try to create my work from that space.” Jon Fox
