Jonathan Trayte

Born 1980, UK

Trayte is based in London and previously studied at the Royal Academy of Arts (2007-2010)

Using food and confectionary as source material, Trayte’s paintings and bronze sculptures are coated with a multitude of meticulously painted layers. These glossy, synthetic ‘skins‘ of paint give the work a colourful pop status, a chameleon appearance and an almost edible quality. The coming together of natural form and saccharine colour generates an awkward physical presence, evidence of nature and culture mutation that is alarming as it is seductive.
