Bio & Statement
Lamar Jones is a painter from Baltimore, Maryland, whose work reflects contemporary life from an American's perspective.
My works are created through a fast-paced painting style to prioritize the organic and visceral process in creating art that deeply resonates with me. Through my art I achieve a better understanding of my own identity as an American man of color. I utilize oil based materials on large scale canvas to accentuate visibility. The goal is never to force the message, but instead guide the viewer to appreciate the story being told in front of them. I incorporate bright and bold color pallets in my works to increase awareness and invoke human emotion within my viewers. I want my audience to connect their individual experiences with my art to the inherent beliefs indoctrinated by media and socioeconomic systems.
