Synopsis: Short film in association with COS about south London Printmaker Jonathan Lawes.

Jonathan creates prints with a distinctive graphic edge, reflecting his love of geometry, shape, and pattern. Working in a loose, organic way, abstract compositions are formed and ultimately develop as his printing process evolves. He has a keen eye for color and layering techniques, masking some areas off while revealing flashes of intense color in others. After spending the best part of a decade in Berlin, Jonathan has recently relocated to Peckham, south London and works as an artist and printmaker. He divides his time between designing for a variety of interior clients and working on his own personal silkscreen prints and other handmade design products.
