Jeremy Bevan

Artist Bio

Brought up in the Sussex countryside Jeremy now lives in Bowes Park, although he also spends time near the North Norfolk coast. With a background as a gardener, his art work is based on observational drawings of natural forms, urban and rural landscapes, plants, fruit and everyday objects.

Jeremy makes prints using mainly lino printing, but also screen printing and mono printing. He is also a painter and recently started to use an iPad to create digital artworks.

Most of his linocut prints are created in his garden studio in Bowes Park on a home-made printing press. Larger work and screen prints are made at East London Printmakers in Mile End.

The screen prints are made with both paper stencils and photo emulsion plates

The linocut prints are mostly made by conventionally cutting sheets of lino, but the latest prints also incorporate layers which have been etched with caustic soda, giving a looser and more textured feel to the final print.
