British artist Jonathan Yeo (born 1970), lives and works in London and is internationally recognised for his portraiture.  He is known for his depictions of iconic figures including Dennis Hopper, Nicole Kidman, Damien Hirst, Malala Yousafzai, and Tony Blair, amongst others.

Rising to prominence in the 2000s as a contemporary portraitist, Yeo became renowned for his paintings of important cultural and political figures. Widely celebrated for both traditional and experimental figurative art, he has explored more conceptual themes in his plastic surgery series and porn collages. Yeo is currently working with a number of technology companies on ways to incorporate the latest technology, including Virtual Reality and advanced 3D scanning, into the evolution of portraiture.

Jonathan Yeo’s work can be found in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery, London, Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle, Royal Collection Trust, Clarence House, The Parliamentary Art Collection and The Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle, Denmark. His latest body of work will be unveiled at Royal Academy’s ‘From Life’, an exhibition about the past, present and future of artists working from life, which runs from 11 December 2017 – 11 March 2018.
