Jonty Hurwitz is a London artist, engineer and entrepreneur.
Blending art and science in his works, he is the only artist to use anamorphosis in sculpture, creating works that are both unique and original. He is also known to have created the smallest human shapes using nanotechnology.
In a 2015 documentary for CNN International dedicated to the work of Hurwitz, art critic Estelle Lovatt describes Hurwitz’s work in these terms: “If Leonardo da Vinci were still alive today, he would have done what Jonty is doing today. He would have used algorithms. No artist works like him today. His art is both thoughtful and sensitive, which is what gives it its uniqueness.
Hurwitz’s work focuses on the gap between art and science, as the artist is aware that these two notions are closely related, much like the body and mind he refers to. in his works.
In 2009, his first sculpture “Yoda and the Anamorph” won the People’s Choice Award at the Maidstone Museum. In 2010 he was selected as a finalist for the 4th International Arte Laguna Prize in Venice.
