Jonathan "Joe" Simon Bramley-Fenton (born 17 December 1971 in Hampstead, London) is an English artist, designer, sculptor and illustrator, who works in monochrome using graphite, ink and acrylics on paper. He has worked on a number of feature films as a concept designer and sculptor, including The Brothers Grimm directed by Terry Gilliam and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy directed by Garth Jennings.
Fenton became internationally known through his first large-scale drawing rendered in graphite, acrylics, gouache, and ink, called Solitude. Completed in 2011, the approximately 8 feet wide and 5.5 feet high Solitude took more than ten months to produce.
Fenton also produces and directs short films showing his art process, such as The Lullaby (2011) and Flight (2014).
Fenton's art work is influenced by many of the early surrealists.
Fenton grew up in Bath, London, and Southern Spain and currently resides in London, England with his wife Iji Asfaw-Fenton.
