Sunday Art Review: African Artist Lawrence Jones

For this week's Sunday Art Review post, I am featuring an unknown African artist I met at the Natural Expo West trade show in Anaheim. His name is Lawrence Jones, who was hired by a global food manufacturer to paint on site. His work caught my eye and i thought it was a perfect feature for the Sunday Art Review. (Thank you Lawrence, for allowing me to photograph your art). This photo above shows Lawrence painting with what looked like a pin...not a paintbrush. I was fascinated to see him create this art before my eyes.

I hope you enjoyed this week's Sunday Art Review as much as I did!

An interesting technique used with my favorite medium. The paintings are so quickly created, yet express good detail. Thanks for sharing! Steven
