Jonathan Ashworth is an artist who specializes in the production of traditional woodcuts and wood engravings. These are two closely related methods of printmaking that encourage feelings of other worldliness through the use of extremely fine and intricate marks. Each print method has a very distinctive appearance, but woodcut prints especially so, since they encourage the artist to work intuitively with the natural materials so as to bring out incredible subtleties of texture.  Jonathan studied at the Royal College of Art, from where he graduated with first class honours in 2006, having previously completed a Fine Art undergraduate degree in Edinburgh. After exhibiting widely across the UK he won Young Artist Of The Year 2012 at the Biscuit Factory (Newcastle).  His work aims to meld the age-old sensibilities of the natural world with contemporary concerns of the city. On display and available for sale at londonprintstudio will be a limited number edition of wood engravings by Jonathan, along with some screenprints editioned at the studio.
