Erik Jones was born in St. Petersburg, FL having a degree from Ringling College of Art and Design. After his graduation he travelled throughout the states to absorb new ideas and cultures. Eventually he resided in Brooklyn, NY where currently works and lives. He has several techniques to assess while working, more specifically he can work on watercolour, coloured pencil, acrylic, water-soluble wax pastel and water-soluble oil on paper.

His work is vibrant, colourful having as prominent theme the woman. Apart from painting he edits his images to create something unique. “I’ll spend about a day or 2 editing, finding positions, faces, hands, etc. that I’ll end up frankensteining together to create the perfect reference. Once I have a figure reference, I start the sketching/conceptual process.” he explains in an earlier interview some time ago. “Despite all the clutter and chaos in these newer works, there is something soothing and comfortable in each piece […]” he adds. Every piece is distinct. Enjoy.
