The Dipped Painting Project by Oliver Jeffers

The Irish Illustrator Explains His New Series

Posted by Gestalten—06/2016

Oliver Jeffers is one today's leading illustrators and children’s book authors. The Irish painter rendered his evocative, detailed pieces incomprehensible for his latest series by dipping them into colored paint. In this video, Jeffers explains his motivations and the particularly intimate, emotional twist that the last-minute modification offers to an illustration. 

See more of Jeffer’s work in Neither Here Nor There or browse a selection of his pieces in the Gestalten webshop.
