The Art Of Jonone

Jonone, real name Ioan Dumitrescu is a prominent commercial freelancer based out of Bucharest, Romania working in the film and videogame industry. His style could best be described as conceptual leaning on matte painter, thanks to his prowess at incorporating photos into his paintings to provide much needed detail. His compositions soar vertically, showcasing fantastic worlds with post apocalyptic and fantasy themes.

The reality of being a freelancer, and most production environments is that due to the stringent schedules and demands placed on artists, techniques like these must be incorporated into the process to save time and keep up with competition. Ioan also organizes a workshop in his native Romania called Behind The Iron Curtain, bringing in some of the world's most renown artists from different disciplines to mentor participants. Check out more of his awesome work after the break!
