The Becklin Sirens (2017) Acrylic on canvas, 400x500mm, NFS

My name is Jonathan Tarry, I started creating art work when I went to an art group for people with mental health issues in 2017. “The Becklin Sirens” was the first piece of work I created at the group and started an artistic journey that has led me to where I am today.

I am a card carrying surrealist. I am inspired by the things around me, urban spaces, scraps of overheard conversation, found objects on the street and Tattoo culture. There are hidden messages in my work and repeated motifs or shapes.
