Jason Line was born in London in 1965 and attended Camberwell School of Art and Gloucestershire College of Art from 1983-7. From this point onwards Jason has exhibited over the years in a number of commercial galleries including John Martin Gallery and the Medici Gallery. Jason paints primarily from observation and works from a variety of subject matter whether it’s the huma...n form, nature or the still life. The subject is always rigorously examined with a particular focus on the relationship and tension between forms and the geometry of composition. His work demonstrates an obvious skill and appreciation for colour, tone and light. Whilst the subject matter of his still life's is more contemporary, they hark back to an older era with their careful application and handling of oils.
Jason is a Member of The British Film Designers Guild and has undertaken commissions to paint scenic artwork, including portraiture, old master copies, murals, trompe l'oeil and decorative painting for film and television. These include well recognised and high profile film and TV productions such as: ‘The Death of Stalin’, 'The Crown', 'Jekyll and Hyde', ‘The Danish Girl’, ‘Poldark’, ‘Quartet' and 'Wuthering Heights' and the recent Agatha Christie drama, ‘Ordeal By Innocence’. In 2018 he also completed a number of murals for the new ‘Being Brunel’ Museum in Bristol. Selected exhibitions include the The BP Portrait Award, National Portrait Gallery, The Royal Society of Portrait Painters, The Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize, The New English Art Club and The Discerning Eye at the Mall Galleries, London.
