Bristol artist Jimmer Wilmott is tipped by Bristol artists as 'the one to watch'. Starting with a joint shows in 2015 he is now preparing for the first of his first of two solo shows in London.
Jimmer is a pop surrealist working in acrylics. His work is a frenzied mash of: 1950’s iconic establishment, the grotesque and the cute of pop surrealism, together with a the vibrant colours of his pallet. His recent works play with popular culture and catchphrases.
He regularly exhibits in his home town of Bristol and has recently made sales in America and across Europe. He is one of the 400 artists selected to paint at Upfest 2018 following the recognition he received in MSN's 'The UK's Most Striking Street art' for his performance last year.
He undertook his degree in Drawing and Applied Arts at the University of West of England following a foundation course at Queens Road Art College. He paints and lives in his studio, a Dutch narrow boat in the Bristol Docks.
I was delighted to feature his work in my Fab 4 exhibition where his orriginals appear alongside Andrew Burns Colwill, Julian Quaye and Thomas Dowdeswell.
