“I am not mad. I do not suffer from hallucinations, nor do I dream. I hear his voice inside my head as plainly as I hear anything else, but it is not a voice that belongs to this world; it is far, far too beautiful to be human.”
Erik Jones "Was born in 1982 in a sunny beach community in St. Petersburg Florida. He received a bachelor’s degree from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2007. Out of college, Working primarily in cover illustration, Erik toured the US, showing at different pop culture and art conventions. He gradually made his way to Brooklyn, New York in 2009, where he now resides. Erik’s work is vibrant and colorful, expressing a heightened sense of realism, captured in his female subjects, juxtaposed with sporadic mark making and nonrepresentational forms that could be said to mimic geometric high-end fashion. This effect is achieved by using multiple mediums such as watercolor, colored pencil, acrylic, water-soluble wax pastel and water-soluble oil on paper mounted to board.“
