Andrew “Android” Jones is a digital painter and multimedia artist who uses a custom computer set up to create layered, psychedelic works and live performances.
At the center of Jones’s work is a fascination with spirituality and altered states of consciousness. Describing his style as Electro-Mineralism, he attributes his ability to create to the wonders of technology and credits the planet’s resources for advancements in art production. By manipulating light and energy, he aims to capture complex concepts and alter the viewer’s perception, pushing the boundaries of the imagination through the use of innovative media.
Android Jones has contributed his art to events on six continents, supporting the Grateful Dead’s Fare Thee Well tour and projecting his work on the Sydney Opera House, the Empire State Building and for the Ghats in Varanasi in India. He represented the Burning Man Project for the No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
He has created live visual accompaniments and album art for Shpongle, Bassnectar, Beats Antique, STS-9, Sporeganic, Phutureprimitive, Tipper, Blutech, CloZee and Random Rab.
Android Jones began studying art at the age of eight. He attended the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, where he trained in traditional drawing, painting, and animation. Jones interned at George Lucas’s Industrial Light & Magic and then began his career as an independent artist. He now lives in his home town of Lyons, Colorado, maintaining a large art studio in a repurposed barn.
