Jono Boyle

Jono Boyle is an artist based in Bristol whose practice is a hybrid of appropriated imagery, collected memorabilia, song lyrics and other cultural debris. Initially working on the street as Motorboy, Boyle’s output acts as a form of selective commentary, picking from the pool of discarded cultural memories like a DJ picks from the crates. As J Patrick Boyle the artist becomes much more personal and intimate. His re-use of song lyrics as punctuation points in our own lives, become a reminder for the individual, a personal trigger to open up past identification and the transient nature within which we reflect our personalities and look for meaning in the world. Jono's works feature in the collections of museums and private collectors and he is a member of the Neomodern artists group.
