Jonathan Callan

Born in 1961 - United Kingdom


Jonathan Callan is a British artist born in Manchester in 1961, he currently lives and works in London.
He studied at the Goldsmiths College of Art where he graduated with honors with a Barchelors degree, then he went to the Slade School of Fine Arts, where he obtained a Masters degree in sculpture.

He makes sculptures with books which he twists and compreses to leave no space between each one of them and creates patterns by playing with the curves and the colors created by his assemblies.
