Expressionist artist and capoeirista Charley Jones (1977) was born in England and currently lives and works in Colombia. He has a BA of Fine Art (HONS), with a major in Painting.
Jones has a strong sense of social responsibility and a special interest in ancestral heritage: “We are all connected as a people, as beings, whether we like it or not.”
Jones’ subject matter, especially his portraits, is heavily influenced by South America, and these ancestral reflections. For him, art is about one world, understanding the other; learning from and about each other. It is about acceptance, and freedom of identity, capturing this cultural heritage on canvas.
