      BIOGRAPHY:

      JIM JONSON is one of America`s finest Sports Artists, featured hundreds of shows and exhibitions all over the world as well as on the cover of Sports Illustrated, Ski, and TIME-Life Books. 

      Jonson's first assignments as an illustrator were for magazines and advertising agencies in California where an increasing amount of art directors were beginning to tire of the photographic realism responded to Jonson's more artistic approach Jim Jonson's artistic objective is to create an accurate depiction of the kinetics of a sports event. Since Jonson was an athlete himself, He has a personal connection and understanding of the physical feats preformed by top of the line athletes. One of the main themes that is consistent in Jonson's works is the phenomenon of motion. Aside from the phenomenon of motion, Jonson also aims to capture the specific point in the action which most dramatically displays the athlete extending himself almost beyond his limits.

    • Jim Jonson is concerned with the kinetics of a sports event. He responds personally to the energy and the power generated by finely conditioned athletes, having been one himself. But above all he attempts to communicate the phenomenon of motion. He does not try to free these moments as a high-speed photograph would, but by skillfully employing the multiple image, Jonson dramatically enhances the narrative power of his paintings. You not only see where something is, but also where it was and the direction in which it's going.


      In addition to the phenomenon of motion, Jonson is also concerned with the specific instant: the point in the action which most dramatically highlights the athlete extending himself almost beyond his limits. It could be the face of a long distance runner straining to reach the finish line, the arched back of a pole vaulter as he barely clears the bar, or the stretched legs and clawing hands of the high hurdler.
