Evan Jones

Evan Jones is a painter based in Atlanta, Georgia. He graduated with a bachelor of fine arts in painting from SCAD Atlanta and has exhibited throughout the United States. 

His recent solo exhibiition at Thomas Deans Fine Art was critically acclaimed. Here is how one art critic described it: "Country Store is a very funny celebration of the tropes and fixations of rural Southern life that blessedly avoids using a cudgel of irony or snark to make its points. This is an artist who can enjoy the excesses of homemade advertisements, primitive folk art painting styles and alternative history while offering a sharp-witted read on global art history mashed up with his countrified Americana....But more than that, Jones’ paintings are phantasmagoric fever dreams of alternative history that hilariously collide military and sports heroics and the romance of masculine adventuring in a tipped hat to European history painting. Jones then blends that painting tradition with the lowbrow American iconography of Nascar heroes Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt, tattoo art, Black Cat firecrackers and cheap Olympia beer. Hilarity ensues....I haven’t had this much fun in an art gallery in ages." --Felicia Feaster, Atlanta Journal-Constitution (2/16/2021)
