Canty, Jon

I am a visual artist based in Edinburgh. My practice explores the urban landscape, narratives associated with past events and abstract compositions inspired by the world around me.

My work encompasses a variety of media and techniques as I seek to create vivid and imaginative images that evoke an emotional reaction from the viewer.

My art practice touches upon my background as a Civil Engineer with a design based aspect and love for architecture.

I currently study at the Leith School of Art, a vibrant independent art school which allows my work to develop and move into new directions, buoyed by the interactions with other students.

Within my art practice I aim to produce a body of work that is exciting, thought provoking and visually appealling.
