New York based artist Erik Jones combines two art styles in his paintings: photo-realism and abstractionism. He paints colorful shapes around and over the model’s face and body as if it were a helmet, or shield. Jones is able to achieve this layered look with the use of various materials such as colored pencils, watercolor, acrylic, water-soluble wax pastel and water-soluble oil.
