Jon Planas

Described by the late Andy Warhol as a “volcano of uninhibited artistic energy”, Peruvian-born Jon Planas is the original neo-native futuristic artist. One of the original Absolut Vodka “Artists of the 90's”, along with Warhol, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf, Jon rose to fame in the mid 80's after rave reviews in the New York Times and media exposure on CNN.

Whether it be extra-terrestrial visitors, classic figures of ancient courts or animal spirits, Jon’s imagery emits tribal messages through the unique communicative skills of an artist in the modern era.

Jon attributes much of his artistic inspiration to pre-Columbian and Incan art, and considers himself a conceptual artist who paints in a style he describes as “instinctual conceptualism”.

Well known in art circles for his exciting canvases, his one-of-a-kind, custom designed wearable art is worn by such mega-stars as Madonna, Robin Williams, Deborah Harry and Cyndi Lauper. Jon’s unique art-on-glass collector bottles are also highly prized. His original Absolut ad was so successful that Absolut Vodka commissioned him to do a new one which has recently appeared in several national magazines. Absolut also commissioned him to create the fabulous Hollywood landmark Absolut City billboard which was a traffic stopper for almost two years on the famous Sunset Strip in Los Angeles.

Jon has also been commissioned by Red Kamel, J&B and Metaxa (to name but a few of his corporate sponsors) to create artwork promoting their products as well.
