We are very happy to make our first visionary artist announcement for EFF2019 - we will be welcoming Android Jones back to Earth Frequency for the first time since 2012. Android Jones will be exhibiting his sublime futuristic works in the Luminarium Gallery, as well as providing some visuals on the main stage and delivering an artist talk in the Frequency Village. Earth Frequency Festival will also be co-presenting Samskara at the Brisbane Planetarium - his epic 25 minute 360 degree immersive psychedelic animation.
Full tour details will be released shortly, but we can confirm at this point Android Jones will only be appearing at Earth Frequency Festival, a one night Melbourne indoor event on the 15th of February, and at the Brisbane Planetarium presenting Samskara - and so this will be a very special exclusive festival appearance at EFF2019!
Android Jones Bio
Lyons, Colorado born Independent Artist Android Jones began studying art at age 8. He attended the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota FL, where he trained in traditional academic drawing/painting and animation. Jones interned at George Lucas’ Industrial Light and Magic and later founded Massive Black, an art development company based in LA. Android began his career as an Independent Artist in 2005. He now lives in his home town of Lyons, maintaining a large art studio in a repurposed barn.
Best described as a “digital painter,” Jones has created an immense body of work. He has become well known for his many layered, psychedelic works and live performances using a custom built digital set up. He participated in the Grateful Dead Fare Thee Well Tour and his work has been projected on the Sydney Opera House and the Empire State Building. A long time member of the Burning Man community, Android has traveled the world exhibiting his work and has contributed to events on 6 continents.
“I have seen things in this life that I am incapable of translating into words. In my practice I have visited realms where the imagination ends, and the terrifying beauty of infinity unfolds over and over again.
If I could distill into words exactly what motivates me to create the art that I make then it would not be worth making it. Instead I have chosen the Pen.
Honestly I don’t know why I make this art, or what compels me to keep creating it; it’s a mystery I intend to pursue for the rest of my life, and each image brings me closer to the Ultimate Truth.” -Android Jones, 2013
