Rodney Lee Jones Jr.
Rodney Lee, Creator, Founder of Pure Artistry, is a multimedia artist originally from Philly. A longtime technologist with roots as an educator, his rhythmic art spans multiple genres of music, sound, painting, drawing, and performance. His chromatic, organic, multimedia visual artistry fuses street art and afrocentric urban styles with abstraction, calligraphy, landscape, and other iconic representational imagery. Ideas of order and beauty inform his eclectic work, while the artist also draws inspiration from the highly personal – but also the social – rituals, struggles, and politics of everyday life as a black man in America.
