In the visionary arts community, few have paved the path for new artists like the legendary Andrew “Android” Jones. His digital painting prowess pioneered the way for cross-media creatives to merge and blend textures on canvas, domes and in VR. He’s even projected his art onto the side of skyscrapers to feed the furnaces of compelling discourse.
He describes his signature style of blended textures and art as ‘electromineralism’ with a touch of ‘popshamanism’. From Burning Man to the Renwick Gallery (and so much more), Android Jones’s scintillating creative talents were forged in the fires of Industrial Light and Magic, a company owned by George Lucas. They were honed further when he started his own company called Massive Black. In a recent video by the Smithsonian Institute he explained the exhibit he showcased at the Renwick which included dual VR rigs so folks could immerse themselves in 360 degrees of his imagination.
He also has been delivering an immersive dome experience, Samskara. In it, he blends indigenous mythology, tribal elements, transhumanist symbols, storytelling with a lense of abstract realism, and the sort of energetic illustration that seems to push the boundaries of perceptibility. You can check out both videos at the bottom of the post!
For a snapshot of his creative delights churned out by the factory of his mind over the years, we’ve gathered 20 of his most eye-catching, brain-bending art.
It’s a ride for your eyes, so buckle up and enjoy!
