Oliver Jeffers

Oliver Jeffers is a visual artist and author working in illustration, painting, collage, and sculpture

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Jeffers' work contains some of his hometown’s humour, where nothing is sacred and everything can be laughed at. He works in various mediums, ranging from painting to typography to collage…   

His work, often executed as comic relief in the face of futility, tends to investigate the ways in which the human mind understands the world around it

Oliver Jeffers Measuring Land and Sea

Jeffers combines classical landscapes and seascapes with technical measurements to create two ways to view his work: one artistic, one scientific. By creating this juxtaposition, the artist underlines two obstacles of human cognition, the tendency to overthink and the inability to fully comprehend…
