“A recent newspaper article described Locust Jones’ manic ink drawings as expressionistic and epic 21st century ‘harbingers of doom.’ An expatriate New Zealander who currently lives in Australia, Jones’ large-scale panoramas of battlefields, cityscapes and devastated natural environments draw equally from graffiti art and mural painting – with more than a hint of Dada-esque, automatist mark-making.”
From www.coca.org.nz

… Jones tackles the big picture head on; his epic drawing is a tortured condensation of everything that is wrong with the world. Climate change and war morph together in his huge dark inky blobs, a toxic blend of apocalyptic mushroom clouds and the ghosts of old growth forests…."
Tracey Clement – Sydney Morning Herald

“… Jones is an expressionist with a refreshing sincerity and frankness, an unconstrained drive to create (albeit often drug-induced), and admirable passion for both his art and its subject."
Renée Gerlich for Salient Magazine

“I am obviously not a landscape artist!”
