But I have a strong sense for how I like my home’s interiors to be, which sits as the underpinning to lots of my work that hangs on the walls. I love simple monochromatic, and primary palettes that echo the Bauhaus and Constructivism. I am drawn to bold graphic shapes, with minimal fuss which might be from having grown up in the house of two architect parents, who were keen minimalists."Quentin adds: "One strand of thought that runs through my work is 'coincidence' – I think most collage artists play with this. I play with connections between two converging materials, and the surprises that result from this. I wanted this to play out in my pieces for Habitat, despite not using photography and so I turned my eye to typography colliding with hand painted lines and shapes, and of course, was drawn to playing with elements of the human face which becomes a central motif here."Quentin Jones for Habitat is available to buy from Tuesday 4 June. Prices range from £60 to £500.
