Jimi Jones communicates his ideas, feelings, and beliefs through his paintings, many of which explore the tensions of social injustice through war, racism, religious differences, and slavery. When Jones talks about his work it's clear he sees his role as an artist-storyteller. "…if you're thoughtful, constructive and creative in your approach, you can have long-lasting historic impact on other people. That's to me the strength and the art of art." Intimate portraits layered with stories and mural-sized paintings reveal Jones' understanding of the world; "I live through my paintings; they help me organize my random thoughts and share them and myself with others."
