Stewart Jones’ work focuses mainly on the sidelines of the city and the relationships of light and shadows within the urban environment. His subjects are the often overlooked, seemingly unimportant places and moments within the cities he paints. His unique compositions -the unexpected angles and perspectives, the shadows and light between buildings- are described with a passionate and confident touch, making these spaces instantly familiar, and yet new and exciting all at once. Stew holds a 4 Yr Associate Diploma in Drawing & Painting from the Ontario College of Art Toronto (1995) and graduated from Sheridan College’s 3yr Classical Animation program Oakville (2001).
Jones is an active founding member of the Canadian Art Collective and City Field North Shore painting collectives and his work can be found in several corporate collections nationwide. Jones has gallery representation in Ottawa & Prince Edward County. He currently lives & paints in Prince Edward County, Ontario.
