Loui Jover Art

Arundel, Australia

Art..........Cartoon............Thought "Right now I like making ink drawings on adhered together sheets of vintage book paper, there is a fragility to these images that I find interesting (as if the wind may blow them away at any moment) and the hand drawn stark black lines against the intricate printed words of the book pages offer a strange fusion and depth that seems to give the images a kind of 'meaning' and back story, even though unconnected in a contrived way. I never pick the image for the pages or visa-versa they just collide as chance permits, any meaning they may have is purely created by the observer and their own imaginings." I have drawn since childhood and as other children stop at some point in their development i never did. I draw obsessively every single day filling books with ideas, cartoons and drawings. So my drawing abilities seem to have developed in natural progression giving me the ability to freely use a number of distinct styles and approaches. I have formally studied commercial and graphic art and hold an advanced certificate in visual communication. I was employed and served as an 'illustrator reprographic' in the Australian Army, This job included regimental photography and related darkroom procedures . I have held several solo exhibitions, and have been included in numerous group and collective shows. My work has been acquired and is included in interesting private,corporate and public collections, throughout the world. My illustrations, cartoons and artworks have been reproduced in books and other printed periodicals. I am a self represented full time artist. I primarily like to work with ink on paper, but am versed with oils and acrylics and enjoy making and using collage. I live in Queensland Australia and have a second studio in Fitzroy Melbourne which I visit several times each year to do street art ,with my wife Fee and daughter Jazz. I immigrated to Australia from Europe with my parents when i was a young child. I have traveled extensively throughout the world The rest is yet to come. thank you for your interest.
