Johnathan Reiner is a doctor by profession, a Neuroscience graduate, a past film editor and an illustrator/doodler by heart.
He was born in the West Coast of USA, grew up in Jerusalem and has been living in London with his redhead lady and cat for over a decade.
Ever since Johnathan was a kid his hand would fidget at the sight of a pen. His notebooks would fill up with random scribbles, his hand vandalising his homework leaving him speechless in front of his teachers. He’s wandered through abstract to ducks and spent a few years exploring the visual wonders of the number ’2′. These compulsions were often unconscious, the creations frequently bad. Nevertheless, these ‘insignificant works’ of his left hand remained the one consistent thing in his life. He professes that creativity kept him going and never failed to bring meaning to his relationships and work. For years he explored pen on paper (check out his blog/project: mydoodleaday.com) before turning his attention to Screen Printing.
Johnathan is a self-taught print maker and has been devoting his recent years to the exploration of colour, pattern and composition through the medium of silkscreen printing.
His work combines graphic and illustrative components through the use of drawing alongside manipulation of photographic textures and details. He is fascinated by relationships, childhood and the expansive and wild possibilities of imagination.
Johnathan is a member of Print Club London and had been exhibiting in London, Berlin and Israel.
