Darvin Jones is a contemporary abstract artist specializing in creating passionate and stimulating yet elegantly executed compositions with a clean graphic design appeal.
Darvin studied sound art and musicology at Evergreen State College in Washington and earned a Master of arts in acoustic ecology and soundscape composition at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada. After spending years in the world of sound, he stumbled into painting and found an immediate gratification from the direct tangibility that exists in visual art.
Darvin’s art emulates a modern graphic design aesthetic and is reflective of the natural design and chaos found in our everyday world. His work explores cultural iconography, appropriation, ecology and the mass production of culture. Within a global climate he seeks to skip the rhetoric of post-modern art and the personalized exploration of meaning, although realizing that enculturation and self are inescapable. However, his focus is on creating works that cross cultural and personal boundaries while leaving the meaning of the artwork up to you. Darvin currently lives and works in Austin, Texas.
