Featured Artist: Oliver Jeffers

Oliver Jeffers makes art. All kinds of art. From figurative painting and installation to illustration and picture-book making. This guy has the kind of talent we all dreamed we might possess during an arty spurt in the early teens.

He’s yet to do an art project we don’t admire and this is a good chance to show you why.

The Books

His books can be shared by all ages, and contain simple stories alongside beautiful paintings, creating heart-aching beauty.

The Heart and the Bottle

Stuck

The Great Paper Caper (a name that instantly appeals to us wordsmiths)

The World

We quite fancy getting our hands on any of these pieces, and sticking them up in the office. Or, failing that ambitious idea, have a go at a DIY project, which will definitely not be as perfect as these pieces.

The Illustrations

Cute and quirky, his illustrations are sure to bring a smile to your face with their youthful reminiscence. They seem to contain a wit that lies in the detail of the art itself, and not a funny pun beneath (and not a triangle or feather in sight!)
