British, b. 1970

Self-taught artist Jonathan Yeo, known as one of the most successful portrait painters in the U.K., makes portraits of celebrities and politicians such as Tony Blair, George W. Bush, Dennis Hopper, and Paris Hilton. Interested in the shock value of nudity and pornography, in 2003, the artist caused a stir when he presented a full frontal male nude at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in London. In 2007, Yeo began using imagery from pornographic magazines to make realistic collage portraits. (After a presidential commission was cancelled, Yeo instead made a collage of George W. Bush entirely from pornographic magazines.)
