Please welcome our guest artist this week – Jon Beinart – artist, publisher, curator, and gallery director of Beinart Gallery, in Brunswick.
‘Jon Beinart is a Melbourne-based Australian artist and is the director and co-owner of Beinart Gallery. He is known for his highly detailed and imaginative oil paintings and drawings as well as his Toddlerpede doll sculptures.
As a child, Jon was lost in his imagination and preoccupied with the lives of ants, snails, spiders and mice. This fascination with small worlds has continued throughout his life. In a sense, Jon’s obsession with detail in his artwork reflects his lifelong preoccupation with small worlds.
Jon founded the Beinart Collective, an online community of strange and imaginative figurative artists, in 2003.
From 2007 to 2012, Jon published several books, including Kris Kuksi: Divination and Delusion; The Extraordinary Drawings of Laurie Lipton; Black Magick: The Art of Chet Zar; Metamorphosis 1 and Metamorphosis 2.
Jon has also curated Beinart Collective group art exhibitions at galleries in the United States and Australia.
In 2016 Jon opened Beinart Gallery in Melbourne, Australia. Beinart Gallery is a curated space for highly skilled figurative artists with a shared fascination for strange and imaginative themes.
Currently, Jon enjoys devoting his time to creating his own art, curating exhibitions in his gallery and watching his most magnificent creation, his son Pudding, discover the world.’
