Although the term "Starving Artist" does not apply to the Painter, Kerream Jones, the hunger of the self-described visual griot is evident in the sensual depths of his paintings, the relentless drive of his business ventures, and in his appreciation for all things creative, expressive, and true. Since beginning his journey toward artistic excellence as a high school student, Kerream has gone on to create some of the most definitive and distinctive work to emerge out of the modern era of fine art. Among them are Long Day, Sleeping Beauty, and Déjà Vu: evocative and iconic pieces steeped in rich earth tones and languid poses. Kerream’s work effortlessly infuses the bright and dark realities of life with the fantasy of frozen moments. Emotions seem to leap off his brush, land on the canvas, and distill art from the vapors of life.
