It's about my passion for the ocean side. I live close to it in France. I've always been intrigued by a light house. So my passion for it pushed me to represent it with buttons instead of windows, like a teddy bear, and puzzle. The character passing by takes away a piece of the canvas and uncovers the writing "night number one". I love to add writing to my paintings cause I know that words are very powerful. The splash in the background is made with enamel paint and it's very shiny. I dropped the paint from a hight while the canvas was flat on the ground. It represents the ocean waves and the love for surfing.
Jonathan Grego is an anglo-italian visual Artist, based in Bordeaux who graduated in Arts in Rome. In his artwork he often deals with social subjects - such as peace, pollution, love, or the vice of the modern man - with humour, irony and provocation. He combines different techniques such as oil, acrylic and watercolour in which he integrates various types of collage. On the quest for originality he started cutting his canvases in order to insert objects like Lego, Puzzles or keys - often with a nostalgic and poetic meaning. Since 2006 he exhibits in galleries in Europe and has won several painting competitions. Passionate about street art he regularly paints large murals in Europe and Australia. His paintings are exhibited permanently in: "Espace 57" in Bordeaux, France (since 2016) Art gallery "Aurora" in Monsègur, France (since 2021) Gallery/Atelier "Partage" in Lesparre-Mèdoc, France ( since 2022) Art gallery "Isartis" in Nuremberg, Germany (since 2019) Art gallery "Ikigai Art Gallery" in Rome, Italy (since 2022)
