Art of IAN JONES

ANIMAL ILLUSTRATIONS

GRAFFITI & STREET ART

I am an Artist and Illustrator based in Nottingham, England.
My work is a blend of traditional and digital techniques resulting in richly layered textural images.


My work bridges the gap between abstract and figurative painting creating a landscape that simultaneously reflects reality and fantasy. A layered mixture of Photography, Pixels and hand made textures meld together on the screen but retain a strong traditional feel. 
Bursting with colour and texture, figures, creatures morph off the canvas creating deep, layered visuals. 
Texture and controlled chaos is perhaps the most important element in my illustration. 

I consider my main Artistic influences to be Street Art/Graffiti, Visionary Art, Tribal Art and Pop Art

I am also known by the name Nonsense Prophet,
I produce physical originals for Gallery exhibition.
Here, I work traditionally using Ink, Acrylics, Spray Paint. Sometimes this is on top of my Digital prints to create one off hybrid originals.

 

I am currently the Artist in residence at Dukki Gifts, Nottingham.
