About the artist Jonathan Allen is an artist and registered art therapist. He studied Fine Art Painting at the University of Brighton and graduated with an MA in Art Psychotherapy from Goldsmiths College. Jonathan's art practise is founded on an experimentation with drawing and its possibilities. These experiments inform his exploration of symbolic representation, space, form and gesture in his paintings, which often present as minimal, poetic and personal.
