Jonathan Crowther is a contemporary still life realist painter. His work explores the everyday overlooked objects of daily life. Working at a micro level he enlarges the objects to a macro scale, causing a degree of abstraction while utilising photorealist and classical painting techniques.
In 2014 Crowther completed his Masters in Contemporary Art with first class honours from the VCA. In 2015 he was awarded an Art Start Grant from the Australia Council for the Arts and went on to win the $15000 Eutick Memorial Still Life Award judged by Sydney Morning Herald art critic John McDonald. In 2009 he was also the winner of the prestigious Churchie National Emerging Art Prize and has been a finalist for a number of other awards and competitions.
