Jayson Lilley takes the ordinary aspects of urban life and makes them extraordinary. Lilley grew up in a seaside village in Devon, and countryside influences can be detected in his artworks, as he highlights and exaggerates the scale of expanses of natural space with gold leaf. Lilley’s reproductions of iconic structures, landmarks, and buildings are placed on wide open skies that are created with gold, copper, or platinum leaf. Lilley's pieces begin with the artist taking hundreds of photographs of the city, which are then meticulously patched together. Before turning his hand to printmaking, Lilley spent fifteen years as a book cover designer in London, where his creations achieved an award-winning reputation within the realm of graphic design and advertising. It is clear to see how his professional experience informs his art, from the illustrative approach to the bold colours and limited palette. Lilley’s artwork is now held in collections across the world, from New York to Japan, Hong Kong to Moscow. Jayson has been shortlisted for the Westmorland Landscape Prize and has exhibited widely, including at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition.

Jayson Lilley Facts

“I was always making things as a child, I found drawing, painting and creating a lot more fun than reading and writing.”

We love Jayson’s innovative triaging of silkscreen, painting and collage.

“My infatuation comes by the shape that my chosen building or vista makes as it cuts its way into the sky - the negative space draws me in as much as the building itself.”

Lilley now lives outside of London, in Kent, but often re-creates the city in his art.

Lilley is inspired by Japanese Ukiyo-e and Constructivism.
