Biography
Jonathan Wylder was born in Salisbury, Wiltshire in 1957. He held his first one man show of paintings in Salisbury City Library in 1973 where Sir Cecil Beaton was his first patron but didn’t begin to sculpt until he was in his thirties. His sculpture has since achieved increasing critical and artistic acclaim and recognition both nationally and internationally. Since the beginning, Jonathan Wylder has been inspired by the beauty of the human form, sculpting mainly in clay and then having it cast into bronze through the traditional lost wax process. He is especially inspired by dance and has shown his appreciation for this subject in his sculptural work with dancers from a variety of ballet companies, including Fiona Chadwick, former principal with the Royal Ballet. Possibly his most moving creation is the life sized memorial portrait of Mother Teresa that was unveiled in Calcutta by the Governor of Calcutta at the Sisters of Mercy Convent, where it has received and continues to receive thousands of visitors. The works of Jonathan are in public and private collections in the different countries of World.
