Jonathan Brennan is an artist living and working in Belfast since 2012. Originally from Dublin, he spent most of the last decade in Brussels, Belgium where he studied painting at the École des Arts d’Anderlecht. He previously studied History of Art & Architecture (and Spanish) at Dublin University, Trinity College Dublin and has an MSc in Multimedia Systems.
Jonathan works with various visual media such as printmaking, painting, photography and video. Digital technology can sometimes play a role in the process of creating his works. He is preoccupied by the relationship between digital and traditional techniques, and the values we impose on them. He is drawn to nature and landscape as subject matter and is fascinated by how urban and rural rub against each other in our cities. His works are in private collections in Europe and the US. He also builds websites.
Since moving to Belfast, Jonathan has exhibited in group exhibitions in Framewerk, ArtisAnn, Belfast Exposed and the Bath House. In 2017, he has solo shows at Framewerk and the Belfast Print Workshop. Jonathan is currently exploring linocut, drypoint, monotype and etching.
