Jeremy Robinson

Jeremy "Maya" Robinson is the 2011 Digital Color Artist. Jeremy often paints live amidst groups of people. Sometimes while he is painting, a calligraphist writes a meaningful phrase on the artwork in a foreign language. Jeremy sometimes paints on people who sit for hours to be adorned.

Many of his pictures are made in phases. The first phase being, just making a simple drawing or painting. He uses colored pencils and pens, technical art pens, gel pens and markers. And also gouache/watercolor paint, acrylic paint and other paints.

The next phase is prints or copies. In making them he may use digital filters or machines to adjust color saturation, contrast, negative/position orientation and brightness. And, also, semi-transparent materials like cloth and paper. Sometimes he moves the original drawing while the copy is being made or draws on the copies or tears the copies into pieces for collage. Once he has a print the process starts over: Collage of collage of collage for many many generations of images. Making artwork through phases like this allows Jeremy to get effects that would not otherwise be possible.

He says "The more I make art in this way the more art there is to make in this way."

Jeremy is a lover of plants, a musician and a traveler. He is available for murals, illustrations, portraits, design work and other commissions.
