April’s Artist – Raashaad Jones

Art Opening on April 14, 2016 @ 8:00PM

Raashaad Jones is a Connecticut born artist with a passion for fantasy, lore and gaming. During his younger years, he fell in love with the various illustrations in trading card games. Seeking an outlet for his imagination, he would often be seen drawing in his sketchbooks everywhere he went. Being the “art kid” growing up, he decided to venture to Beverly, MA and attended Montserrat College of Art in 2012.​ Having little to no painting skills yet always determined to improve, he delved into various mediums to find what resonated with him most. Raashaad eventually discovered digital painting in his junior year of college. With a humbled ambition and support from instructors, he honed his skills with recognized merit. Raashaad found his voice in being a fantasy artist focusing on serene, boldly colored, figurative illustrations. He dreams of a life making monsters, dragons, wizards and other fantastical creatures.

On the verge of turning 21, my early childhood years were spent traveling the country with my family. From out the car window I was fortunate to see most of America and behold its beautiful scenery and animals, and with my fathers artistic assistance and my mothers encouraging spirit, these sights turned into inspiration that has carried into my work today. My work primarily consists of fantasy creatures both dark and eerie or light and endearing, as well as whimsical landscapes, and are almost always completed in traditional medias such as gouache, watercolor, and ink.
