Jayson Lilley was born in 1972 and was brought up in an idyllic seaside village in Devon. Formerly trained in visual communication, advertising and graphic art, he now lives and works in London.
His signature bright colours and slick lines create everyday images and themes into iconic scenes. He aims to clear away all clutter and excess and delivers minimalist punchy paintings drawing in style from his background in advertising.
Jayson Lilley transforms the most ordinary building on a corner into a visual feast worthy of a second look. Even something as humble as his signature Friesian cow, reminding him of his childhood in Devon, is given a majestic air.
Heavily influenced by pop art, Jayson Lilley lists Roy Lichtenstein and art deco architecture amongst his favourite inspirations.
