Born in Portsmouth in the United Kingdom, JON BANTHORPE has experimented with places devoid of sea views such as Manchester and London, only to settle in Valletta, Malta with its prerequisite 180 degree harbour view from his studio.

Having obtained a degree in Visual Art and Culture from the University of Salford, he has applied this variously in a three year gallery project – ‘2C Albert Road’, as a demolition foreman, in editorial positions, various movie art departments, and currently through the inter-disciplinary studio Reasons For.

Extracurricular activities include co-running Pecha Kucha Valletta, curator of the Kinemastik Kids Film Festival, a sporadic artistic practice, and skateboarding.
