Jonathan Wolstenholme is a British artist and illustrator. He attended Purley Grammar School before graduating from Croydon Art College.
Jonathan Wolstenholme is a British artist and illustrator best known for his amazingly detailed works deriving from a love of old books. Books on Books is a series of illustrations in which the book world is being described by… the books. Jonathan Wolstenholme combines his appreciation of surrealism, his fondness for antiquarian books, and his wry humor in creating his clever and engaging anthropomorphic images. In doing so, he has created a popular niche for his art, and brought attention to a disappearing art-form; the ancient hallmark of creating books.
Wolstenholme paints exquisitely detailed still lifes of books in watercolour .He is fascinated by the world of antiquarian books and paraphernalia from a bygone age when craftsmanship was highly prized. He works in watercolour in such exquisite detail that it is possible to read every word in the books that he paints.
Jonathan has had three one-man shows in London and has exhibited at the Singer and Friedlander Exhibition several times, also at the Discerning Eye Competition at the Mall Galleries winning a prize in 2002. In 1997 an exhibition of Jonathan’s work was shown in New York at the ‘Works on Paper’ fair. In 2003 he had a joint show with fellow Portal artist George Underwood, this was a great success, Jonathan also took part in an exhibition of Idiosyncratic Portal Artists in Tanglewood, near Boston in 2004 and Portal Painters at the Edinburgh Festival in the same year. Wolstenholme regularly exhibits with Portal at all the major Art Fairs in London and Glasgow.
As an illustrator Jonathan has worked for all the major magazines and newspapers using his own brand of quirky humour.

Hot Tub Cinema is an experience like no other. Combining relaxing hot tubs, great films and amazing spaces, it is a luxurious event that celebrates film in a fun and engaging way. Attendees can purchase whole tubs to share with friends or buy individual tickets to share with fellow hot tubbers. The tubs are cleaned, refilled and heated before every show. Popping-up throughout the year in London and around the UK, Hot Tub Cinema is also preparing to tour internationally in the near future. During the summer, we takeover rooftops in central London with astounding views across the city’s inimitable skyline. For the autumn/winter we move indoors to continue the fun hidden away from the unpredictable weather.
Where it all began
Summer 2013 marks Hot Tub Cinema’s first official birthday. Evolving from a private party with one hot tub seven years ago, the first public rooftop screening was on 7th July 2012. Since then the event has grown to include up to 20 hot tubs, two screens and a bespoke surround-sound system, creating a totally unique and fully immersive cinema experience.
Tom Eckert, a US artist creating these brilliant hyper realistic wood sculptures. Each piece has been carved entirely by hand.Tom says his preferred woods are basswood, linden and limewood because they carve and paint well and are stable. His background is in painting and drawing, where his focus was on realism. His preferred paint is waterborne lacquer applied using both spray guns and brushes.
Tom Eckert explains:
“By tradition, cloth has been widely used to conceal and shroud objects in practices ranging from advertising to church rituals. Covered forms are often more evocative – with a sense of mystery absent from the uncovered object by itself… ‘Cloth‘ carved of wood has much different structural qualities than real cloth. When this idea is applied to my compositions (floating book, floating cards, floating rock) a sense of the impossible happens – for me, magic.”
