Jonathan Twingley is an American artist who I found in instagram.
Jonathan's bio state's that he studied at New Yorks School of Visual Arts - as did Olivier Kugler. Although Jonathan and Olivier's work is individually unique, there's a sliver of similarity that runs through both - particularly Olivier's earlier work (a similarity that can be traced back to Alan Cober).
Jonathan's work utilises distortion and multiple view points to create images that are at once realistic representations and expressive, almost cartoon depictions of busy inner-city spaces.
Often created in collections and based upon a unifying rule based approach ('drawn on location from memory' and 'everything at once') Jonathan's work is brave and a fantastic example of an artist who has stepped away from the pressure to produce a 'good drawing' in the traditional (boring?) sense.
Jonathan's work has been a real inspiration to me and whilst I have adopted a relatively accurate drawing approach in 'Waiting' my recent sketchbooks will show scattered examples of Jonathan's influence bleeding onto the page.
