Jono Boyle is an artist based in Bristol who originally began working on the street under his then DJ name ‘Motorboy.’

In his own words, Boyle says of his work: “I am fascinated with and motivated by this cultural debris that society’s ever changing fashions leave behind. Whether working in paint, print, installation, or collage, my work act as a form of selective commentary, picking from the pool of discarded cultural memories like a DJ picks from the crates.

Working across a range of different media, Jono Boyle features in the collections of private collectors and museums worldwide, and is a founding member of the Steal From Work artist collective.

Jono was on SPS Board of Directors until 2017 and was also its Treasurer.  He was always extremely generous with his time for the studio.  He now based in Athens, making new works and establishing new ventures.

Horizon Series

The Horizons series was commissioned by the Ikon Gallery for a special exhibition in 2008. Ikon is an internationally acclaimed contemporary art venue located in Birmingham, UK . This series of screen prints is a kaleidoscope of images based on the experience of travel and visits around the globe in the early 21st century, mostly by air, and returning to see the familiar with fresh eyes. There are 19 prints each in a limited edition of 20 and they were all printed at SPS. Since then they have been exhibited widely, including a show by SPS ” Going the Distance, Travels in Time”. It parallels an earlier narrative series of 20 prints based on driving overland to Asia in 1970 which was printed in a makeshift studio in Pakistan. Journey is now in private and public collections including the V and A Museum.

Australian Red was inspired by a road trip in SE Australia
