About

JasonLimon17.jpg

Jason Limon is a painter and sculptor that was born in San Antonio, Texas. In early 2007 he moved from a long career in graphic design to begin work as a visual artist exhibiting in galleries across the United States and parts of Europe. He has had solo exhibitions in New York, Albuquerque, and Chicago and has participated in a large variety of group exhibitions. His art has been presented in an array of publications and has received awards and accolades from Communication Arts, American Illustration and The Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles. In 2016, a toy based on one of his paintings won Toy of the Year award from the Designer Toy Awards in New York. He continues to reside in San Antonio, Texas with his wife and two daughters.

Statement:
Over time I have explored a range of subjects, from ideas based on nature to otherworldly beings. As I progress through my work there is one field where I started and tend to gravitate toward the most: history. History is all around. Within the elements that surround us every day are bits of someone else - a record of thoughts made up of color, typography and symbols marked onto paper and metal to represent products throughout time. As an artist I've grown to value these pieces of history; to survey and connect them to craft my own thoughts and feelings.
