Max Jones is a self-taught abstract artist born and raised in North Texas. Max’s artistic journey began almost accidentally in his early days as a gallery owner where he featured other people’s art. A publisher of a design magazine happened to notice an unfinished abstract painting in the back of Max’s studio where he painted as a hobby. She commissioned a piece for herself that day with the agreement that Max would put a piece of his own work out in the gallery for sale.
That first piece sold almost immediately and the rest as they say is history…Max has spent almost two decades honing his signature style which is a relaxed ethereal blending of colors inspired primarily from nature. He works intuitively, adding layer upon layer until the final image reveals itself.
Although Max is most known for his abstract work, he started a whimsical series of nature and figurative paintings called “Just for Fun” that have become quite popular with his collectors in recent years. The subject matter of this collection reaches far and wide. You never know what Max will come up with next. Remember they are “just for fun”!
Max’s work is featured in countless private and commercial collections throughout the U.S. and abroad. In 2015, McGaw Graphics, a leading international art publisher, launched the Max Jones Collection worldwide and have published open-edition reproductions of Max’s work in more than 25 countries. Mr. Jones lives and paints in Taos, NM.
