Jonathan Brown Chats About His Custom Mosaic Art

Houston-based artist Jonathan Brown finds inspiration in broken pieces. A creative thinker from an early age, Jonathan has become a renowned mosaic artist. From wall décor to swimming pools to incredible installations in public spaces, Jonathan creates custom artworks that are stunningly unique and modern, working a mosaic in wherever he sees it fitting in. Jonathan explains his love of mosaic and his visionary creations to JustLuxe:

 When did you start working as an artist? 
Technically I started being an artist when I was a child. My mother could see that I was an artist from the start. I was always drawing and explaining to everyone I met that, "I'm going to be an architect." I remember when I was around five my mother wouldn't allow me to go out and play until I had handed in a drawing to her. But I got smart, stayed up nights with a flashlight under the covers doing multiple drawings every night and just shoving them under my bed. That way when I wanted to go out and play and she'd say, "Where's your drawing little man?" I would just run and grab something from under my bed; it became routine. Even now at 43 I still find random sketches kicked under my bed. Subconsciously I still want to go out and play.
