John Powell-Jones is audio/visual artists whose practice incorporates illustration with fine art and draws heavily from his knowledge and experience of traditional print processes. The various print processes inform each other and the disciplines cross over; a lino becomes a screen print, accidental marks from an etching plate are then manipulated to form part of an image. The visual content of his work takes influence from the historical and the modern. A mixture of ancient texts and imagery of folklore, mythology, alchemy, the occult and witchcraft – to comics, horror, animation, cartoons, popular culture and all the rich iconic imagery that comes with it.
Co-founder of risograph print collective, Mono.
