Direct from the artist’s studio
The artist works from his studio in Cardiff, Wales. Jones, who was born in Aberaman, near Aberdare in Rhondda Cynon Taf, graduated with an M.A. in Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art, London and was awarded Junior Fellowship at Bath Academy of Art. Among his tutors were the British artists Adrian Heath and Patrick Heron. Jones’ works of art are symbolic and surrealist in nature and set amidst an eternal landscape.
“The importance of colour as a vehicle of expression in painting was impressed on me at an early stage of my development, by the British artist Patrick Heron. My work mainly adheres to, and is inspired by, European traditions in painting. My deepest influences lie in the work of Miro, Braque, Kandinsky and Heron”. Martyn Jones
