Jon Beinart is an Australian, artist, collector, curator, publisher and all round art enthusiast and philanthropist based in Melbourne. Jon founded The ‘Underground Australian Art Collective’ in 2003, which evolved into The ‘beinArt International Surreal Art Collective‘ come 2006. From there the site grew from strength to strength. At some point with a gnawing urge to publish the artists he’d collected on the website, along with the increasing costs of managing and hosting a popular website, Jon branched out into publishing.

Four books later, Jon now finds himself the centre of much interest within Fantastic, Visionary, Low Brow and Dark art circles. This consequently led him to be invited to assemble the “beinArt Metamorphosis” exhibition for Copro Gallery in California.

The accompanying interview was recorded with Jon just a few days after the opening of the exhibition. The interview explores his motivations, future plans and his impressions and experiences while in California for the exhibition.
