Erik Jones has miraculous ability with thepaintbrush. He presents to the viewer a spectral intensity thatimbues a sense of erudite passion that is certainly rare in it'sallotment in the world. Jones decorates his figures in nostalgicallybright colors but the sense of mystery is unmistakable. One feelsthat there are things yet to be unveiled while viewing.

To create such work Jones usesvarious types of media: watercolor, pencil, pastel, acrylic, oil, aswell as other medias and is executed on Rives BFK paper. - Zach Tutor
