Advent Artists: Jon Betts

Every day during Advent 2015 we’ll feature a different South West artist. We’ve framed, printed or exhibited the artists featured in Advent Artists.

2nd December: Jon Betts

Jon Betts is a young artist who references classic tattoo art in his paintings. His work uses repeated motifs and colour schemes, and integrates text and graphic elements. Aside from his personal work, Jon also designs record sleeves for bands including Californian The Story So Far.

Jon has an online following and principally sells his work online via bigcartel.

We’re in the process of working with Jon at the moment to create a high quality print run of his latest works. It’s been a joy to work with these images; we love the depth of colour, smooth texture and punchy graphics. It’s great to work with an artist who is passionate and precise about his art. The image below shows our test strips against the originals.
