Jonah Waterous was born in Canada in 1996, and raised in the Bahamas,
where he currently lives and creates from his studio. Jonah attended Queens University where he completed his degree in Sociology. During his time in University Jonah began working under his mother, world renowned artist, Jane Waterous. As a protege he learned all aspects of the creative process and began branching off to form his unique style.
Jonah meticulously hand paints thousands of three dimensional dots onto the canvas that creates lifelike texture and the illusion of movement as light bounces from seemingly endless dots of colour. Jonahs goal with his works is to find the detail in the small things in life by painting them in them large scale. A series he calls, "larger Than Life"
