AFTERL-IFE WORLD | MAD DOG JONES
DIESEL ART GALLERY presents “AFTERL-IFE WORLD” – the world premiere exhibition of Toronto-based artist MAD DOG JONES.
MAD DOG JONES’ works deftly interweave cyberpunk elements with the beauty and freedom of nature. As a lover of the wilderness, which was ever present where he grew up, he brings a fresh thematic to the metropolitan aesthetic, done up in citrus and neon tones of technology somehow rendered as a space naturally human.
Having grown up around Thunder Bay, MAD DOG JONES draws constant inspiration from the Canadian wilderness, as well as from Japanese animation, SF films, and cyberpunk, pulling together a rare and powerful fusion of two worlds sometimes deemed irreconcilable.
Since 2017, when MAD DOG JONES first introduced his art to Instagram, it has exploded in popularity, yet this will be the first exhibition of his works anywhere in the world. As such, this will be the first chance to see his works up close—translated into our world just as they translate our world itself into an experience intimate and grand at the same time.
The exhibition presents over 15 new works, as well as classic pieces redone, retouched, and all brought into “reality” for the first time.
Autograph session: September 7 | 16:00–18:00
