Jonathan Armour is an Irish artist based in London, UK. Fusing a first degree in Engineering with a Masters in Fine Art, Armour’s practice is an interplay between the mediums of oil painting and time-based digital, with an underlying urge to make the pixel more visceral.
Armour’s creative focus is an enquiry of the body and human condition, with a particular fascination with the skin, which he sees as an interface between the person within and the world around us. His digital work centres on collaboration with actual people to explore aspects of what and who they are - that realness feeds the rich imagery.
He has exhibited extensively in Europe, Australia/New Zealand and the US, including the Vigeland Museum, Oslo; Auckland University of Technology; Kings College London; Arco Madrid; Guildhall Gallery for the City of London Corporation.
Armour was awarded the NTU Vieunite Art Prize in 2022 for his work Specimens about biophilia and the landscape of the mind.
