Day 18 – Jonathan Yeo

Many happy returns to British artist Jonathan Yeo, who is 40 today. Jonathan is a self-taught painter whose portraits in oil include subjects like Tony Blair and Rupert Murdoch (below). However it was his collage portrait of George Bush jr. which brought him notoriety, being composed of fragments of pornographic magazines. Examples of both painting and collage can be found at the artist’s website.
