Art from Jon Mann (@genpopart)

To Jon Mann, art is therapy. Rather than offering his interpretation and commentary on the outside world, his work displays the imagery in his mind: his more subconscious perception of things. The first step in realizing these internal images is finding matching photographic reference material, which Jon takes everywhere he goes: pictures of architecture, random items off the street, and models. He begins to layer the traces of these images, confusing his own perception of them, leading to a focal point within the chaos. Using brightly colored pencils on paper, he distorts the real images to match his internal ones.
