Quentin Jones

Quentin Jones is an illustrator, filmmaker and photographer whose quirky stop-motion animations have been snapped up by fashion brands such as Chanel, Victoria Beckham, E. Tautz, Holly Fulton, Kenzo and Louis Vuitton. Her aesthetic is a modern take on the surrealist tradition, realized largely through photomontage and loose paintwork. Jones’ style is stamped on all of her projects, as she works on all aspects of filmmaking, from storyboarding concepts to illustrating, directing and editing.

In 2013 Jones was commissioned by Smythson to create a series of 10 artworks for an exhibition “The Panama Legacy” to coincide with the re-launch of the iconic luxury brand. Following the success of the exhibition, she was commissioned by Smythson to collaborate on a collection of leather goods for the Panama Legacy, which launched in March 2014.

Other recent works include films for Kenzo, a Louis Vuitton accessories brand, as well as collaborations — for which she both modeled and created films — with Tibi, Hoss Intropia and the GAP, among others. Jones’ films have been part of the British Fashion Council’s London Fash/On Film Program and selections in the New York Fashion Film Festival.

Jones studied philosophy at Cambridge University and illustration at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She lives and works in London.
