Lee Jones - Resident 2050 Artist
Meet Lee Jones, our seriously talented lead artist. Lee's trademark is blending fantasy with the figurative to create imagery that delves deep into the spirit of the subject. He has exhibited in prestigious galleries across the globe alongside the likes of Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin.
The combination of the finely observed realistic detail with fantasy elements means the passion and the art of sport can be fully expressed in Lee's work for 2050 Sports. There is so much that goes into an exceptional sporting performance that can never be captured with a snapshot image. To get under the skin of the athlete Lee looks at what drives them to be exceptional, then paints dynamic portraits that show the things that conventional sports art cannot. The drama, determination and sheer excitement of competition are all captured on canvas in a way that nobody else can. You watch sport because it is more than the sum of its parts; which is why Lee Jones seeks to represent the elusive qualities that make sport so compelling.
Painting is Lee's life, taking him round the globe and back again to his base in Liverpool. After opening his own studio in Hollywood, Lee Jones is now based in Britain again and his fine art and fantasy art can be found in private and public collections worldwide.
Lee Jones has worked with top athletes in the past, but perhaps his most exciting venture came with the Renegade Ducati team in the World Superbike Championship in 2003 and 2004. Along with his team of artists, Lee painted the bikes of Noriyuki Haga and Leon Haslam as well as stunning graffiti inspired works in the pit lane. Lee watched as Haga took victory on a bike he had hand-painted; not many artists get to see their work travelling to sporting success at speeds of up to 200mph.
