Grace Ted Jones
Ted Jones(1952-2017)was born in Dublin, Ireland.
Apart from early instruction from his father, Ted was a completely self taught painter.
He led a colourful and varied life, spending time in France and England, however most of his life has been spent in the country of his birth, principally in Dublin and the later years in Killarney where his superb Dublin wit and interaction with the locals have by now indelibly etched him into the history of the town.
In 1998, demand for his work led to the publication of the first of a collection of Signed Limited Edition Prints, which have been hugely successful with over 20 titles published since its inception. In fact, demand has been so strong that many of the editions are completely SOLD OUT … with some of these prints now changing hands for in excess of 10 times their original price.
His first one-man show in 2005 sold out completely in a matter of hours hitting the headlines in many Irish newspapers.
2006 saw the publication of “A Life..wrapped up” a signed limited edition book on his life and work.
His emotionally charged portraits of emigrants, his pub scenes depicting a sadly now vanishing era of Irish pub life and his sensitive and beautiful nudes are the treasured possessions of private collectors, investment houses and business institutions the world over.
