Jason and his Argonauts

Jason Wilsher-Mills: The Super Cool Digital Artist!
 

22 June to 7 September 2024
 

Jason is an artist that uses fancy tech to create awesome, colourful art.

Jason wasn't always a digital whizz. He started out using oils, but later switched to making art with computers and tablets. Why? Because he's a superstar who adapted to challenges and embraced new ways to create after becoming disabled.

He's exhibited his art all over the world, including at V&A Late, Tate Exchange at Tate Modern and Liberty Festival London. He has produced commissions for Sky Arts, ITV, the British Council and the Houses of Parliament and was recipient of the prestigious Adam Reynolds Award 2020.

Jason's work celebrates his own life and experiences, including his northern roots, pop culture he loved as a kid, and the stories of other people like him. His art is often big, bright, and full of humour! 

Jason creates all sorts of cool stuff, from flat pictures to 3D sculptures, even hiding secret digital surprises in his artwork!
