Jonathan Blum


Jonathan Blum is a well-known painter on the Provincetown art scene where he has had both solo and group exhibitions dating back to 1988. He gained his reputation for the manner in which he painted famous people from the eyes to the top of their head. He states, "I can trace my painting career back to a cartoon I created for Stuff magazine in Boston in 1986. The cartoon depicted a forehead–a caricature of my own face from the eyes up. From there I started painting "forehead portraits"..." He has moved beyond that "cartoon element" and now focuses not only on real people's forehead and full face portraits but also imaginary people, historical figures, animals and, as he says "until 1998, Sesame Street's Bert."
