Canton, Ohio & Lake Arrowhead, California (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
Artists Jeff Mueller and Rod Jones announced the completion of their collaborative work entitled Bright Lights Big City. The work will first be debuted at 2nd April Galerie & Studios on May 2, 2012, 7-10 pm.
The collaboration started over a Twitter friendship with Jeff, who is known as @ComputerArtMan when he featured @RodJonesArtist on his V-log. The two recognized & respected their mutual talents and decided to collaborate on a work of art.
The artist Rod Jones with a 25-year history as a photographer who recently shifted to making art with a paintbrush was excited to participate in this collaboration. Although he primarily paints these days he has never lost his flair for the photographic arts. On a recent trip to New York, Rod captured the flavor of Manhattan and again memorialized the Chrysler building from a unique perspective sharing the image with Jeff.
Jeff, who prides himself in combining age-old techniques with modern technology to create art in a way never seen before is known for his talent in the field of digital printing and manipulation. Jeff started his career in 1984 as a full time commercial artist for Altered Images Inc. and then quickly transitioned into digital manipulation and photo enhancement art.
His formidable talents in the world of digital print enhancement was the catalyst for the collaboration and much to everyone’s delight, the resulting work promises to be a real treat for the mind’s eye.
Rod Jones Artist stated, “ Although I am enjoying the success of my painting career this collaboration made a lot of sense. It’s not often a Photographer can see a black & white image transitioned into such colorful piece of art.”
Jeff Mueller adds, “Sometimes it’s just pure creative fun to work with another artist. Taking my vision and melding into theirs has been a creative charge. I’m happy with the results and I’m hoping to experience more collaborations.”
