Jonathan Christie (b.1969) grew up in South-West London before completing his Foundation at Kingston and his Degree at Maidstone. Jonathan lives in East Sussex and has exhibited his paintings and drawings throughout the United Kingdom.

‘Jonathan Christie’s paintings are inspired by real places and objects, but in the memory, reimagined, conflated, obscured and elucidated. Deploying watercolour, graphite and sgraffito on a gesso board, he will incise, distress, glaze and wash, but always guided by the powerful impulse of drawing. In this way the paintings emerge from change and development, traces of their genesis apparent at completion.’

—Christina Jansen, Managing Director, The Scottish Gallery

Jonathan Christie held a solo exhibition at The Scottish Gallery in June 2021, called Scratching The Surface.
