Ben Jones for Altamont

August 7, 2014 by shawn.brown@SoleTechnology.com

BEN JONES MAKES ART THAT MAKES PEOPLE FEEL GOOD. THE LOS ANGELES BASED ARTIST AND ANIMATOR WORKS ACROSS MULTIPLE MEDIUMS AND PLATFORMS, CREATING TRIPPED-OUT, SURREAL ART THAT IS HEAVILY ROOTED IN TECHNOLOGY AND LIVES AT THE JUNCTION OF ART, FILM, AND CULTURE; ART THAT MAKES YOUR BRAIN SMILE. AS A FOUNDING MEMBER OF PAPER RAD, HE COLLABORATED WITH JACOB AND JESSICA CIOCCI TO MAKE A LOT OF COOL ART THAT LOOKED SOMETHING LIKE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOUR COMPUTER TOOK MUSHROOMS AND SPAT OUT ITS DREAMS. SINCE THEN HIS WORK HAS BEEN EXHIBITED AT THE LIKES OF DEITCH PROJECTS IN NEW YORK, PERES PROJECTS IN BERLIN, THE TATE BRITAIN IN LONDON, AND MOST RECENTLY, THE MOCA IN LOS ANGELES IN 2012. JONES HAS ALSO BEEN LENDING HIS BRAND OF BIZARRE CREATIVITY TO FOX AS THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF THEIR NEW SATURDAY NIGHT CARTOON BLOCK ADHD (ANIMATION DOMINATION HIGH-DEF), WHICH HAS ALSO UNLEASHED ITS AWESOME TENTACLES INTO THE INTERNET VIA YOUTUBE AND MANY, MANY VERY COOL GIFS.
