Based in Cape Town, South Africa and entirely self taught, South African artist Jono Dry has worked for the last thirteen years on creating a practice centred around his large-scale hyperrealist graphite works. The luxury of time runs strongly through Jono’s practice as an artist ~ with a single hyperrealist graphite drawing taking about 2 months to complete, with up to 200 hours of drawing. Dry then produces a series of limited edition Giclée prints from these original works. Exhibiting locally and internationaly, Dry has devoted his practice to pushing the medium of graphite. With perfection as a fundamental aspect of hyperrealism ~ a sense of sleek precision is kept at the core of his practice. Using rich visuals and storytelling, the video documentation of the pieces reaffirm the work’s sense of time and its power to move.
