Jon Beinart is a Melbourne-based Australian artist and is the director and co-owner of Beinart Gallery. He is known for his highly detailed and imaginative oil paintings and drawings as well as his Toddlerpede doll sculptures.
As a child, Jon was lost in his imagination and preoccupied with the lives of ants, snails, spiders and mice. This fascination with small worlds has continued throughout his life. In a sense, Jon's obsession with detail in his artwork reflects his lifelong preoccupation with small worlds.
