About Jonathan Comerford



Jonathan was born in Cape Town, South Africa of immigrant British parents.

Jonathan is currently working in London as an artist / printmaker. He continues indipendently publishing fine art prints with artists in both London and Cape Town.

I am an artist/printmaker as well as a publisher of prints. Since 1987 I have published and collaborated with numerous artists, both individually and through producing collaborative portfolios, from around the world.
My forte as a multi-disciplined artist/printmaker is in engaging the diversity of techniques printmaking has to offer ranging from etching, mezzotint, silkscreen, linocut, collagraph to silkscreen as well as digital prints.

Jonathan Comerford is the recipient of the Volkskas Atelier Award, 1995, and spent 6 months at the Cite des Artes, Paris, France. He has taken part in numerous Print Bienniales and exchange programmes and has been a resident artist at the Grafische Werkstatt im Traklhaus, Salzburg, Austria.
