Airbrushed Animals by Eyan Higgins JonesJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 22 May 2012
Good friend of Juxtapoz, Jason Jagel, sent us a great tip on this fantastic series of airbrush, oil on canvas paintings of animals by Eyan Higgins Jones. When you get a glimpse of the up-close details of this North Wales-born artist, you will understand why we are so blown away by his technique and overall command of airbrushing.
Jones says of his animal series: "These animal portraits are painted to convey the power, awe, beauty, vulnerability and sheer magnificence of the animal kingdom. The concept behind the collection is to portray the importance of each animal, how their influence should be acknowledged and their larger than life presence respected. The structure and composition of each unique piece uses the effect of direct eye contact and gives aid to deliver their tenuously threatened and endangered existence on the fragile planet they share with humans."
