Oliver Jeffers

From figurative painting, collage and installation to cartography and picture-book making, Oliver Jeffers’ practice takes many forms. His distinctive oil paintings have been exhibited in multiple cities, including the Brooklyn Museum in New York and the National Portrait Gallery in London.

Curiosity and humour are underlying themes throughout Jeffers’ practice as an artist. As much about investigating the ways in which the human mind understands its world, his work is also executed as comic relief in the face of futility.

Oliver’s picture books are translated into over 30 languages with HarperCollins publishing them in the UK and Penguin in the USA. Titles include the New York Times Bestseller This Moose Belongs to Me, Stuck, How to Catch a Star and The Hueys.

Working in collaboration with Studio AKA, Oliver’s second book, Lost and Found, was developed into an animated short film, which has received over sixty awards including a BAFTA for Best Animated Short Film.

Oliver won an Emmy in 2010 for his collaborative work with director Mac Premo. Picture Book awards include the The New York Times Best Illustrated Books, Smarties Award, Irish Book of the Year, The Blue Peter Book of the Year, as well as shortlists for the British Book of the Year, The Roald Dahl Prize and the Kate Greenaway Medal

Born in Australia and brought up in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Oliver now lives and works in Brooklyn New York.
