Oliver Jeffers

Artist, Author


Oliver Jeffers makes art and tells stories—fine art for (mostly) adults, and picture books for (mostly) children.Visual artist and author working in painting, illustration, collage, performance, and sculpture, Oliver’s critically acclaimed picture books have won many awards and been translated into over 50 languages, selling over 14 million copies worldwide. Curiosity and humour are underlying themes throughout his practice. While investigating ways the human mind understands the world, his work also functions as comic relief in the face of futility.
