Mikey Jones

Mike, or Mikey, Jones, not to be confused with the Swansea valley based artist, is an exciting young talent from Wrexham. After a long process of travelling around Wales for inspiration, and painting both the best and worst Welsh landscapes on offer, Jones presents Wales In Colour. He explains “Wales is a country renowned for its diverse natural beauty and proud historic culture. Each piece expresses elements of the above that together, builds a vivid contemporary narrative of Wales as I see it today.” He likes to paint in oils in situ. After studying Architecture at Bristol UWE Mikey began to document the built and natural environment, focusing on the architectural and social context of the areas he paints. For the last year he has travelled across Wales painting were possible, getting lost, wet and meeting new people along the way.
