Visual Artist: Cass Jones

By Evie Lavers - October 21, 2015

Cass Jones is a cheese lovin’, tomboy from Perth now livin’ on the East Coast. AND she paints with ALL of the magical colours, at the same time! I was lucky enough to meet this sweet soul at a legendary Bulwer Street kick-on early in 2014.
Cass Jones has always been "artsy" creating super cute cartoon characters in high school which lead her on to studying Visual Art at TAFE. It wasn’t until she moved to the art hub of Australia, Melbourne that she was inspired to pick up her paintbrush’s again. Her success has escalated quickly, with her eye catching vibrant designs being featured on Magnus Collective. The exposure has opened up many exciting opportunities including the purchasing of her work by bachelorette Sam Frost and also Head of Channel 10 Russel Howcroft.
“I would love to be able to have the ability to travel regularly between my hometown of Perth & Melbourne, with my income as an artist. Most importantly for family time, but secondly to become involved in the WA arts community. I really love the vibrant coastal style of a lot of the art which comes out of Perth, and would love to be able to contribute to some projects back in my hometown!” explained Cass. I totally know where she’s coming from. Recently I’ve been assisting Perth Mural Artist Jerome Davenport with the planning of his work in USA trip in 2015. Perth really is becoming such a supportive hub for all kinds of art!
In the coming months she has quite a few commissioned pieces in the works as well as launching her collaboration with a new Melbourne brand, Koda. Together they're working on a 'Art Series' homewares products, using her artwork for their branding.
Cass draws inspo from DEB, a San Fran street artist originally from Australia who is killin’ it. “I've been following her for a few years now & she just goes from strength to strength, she's super inspiring and her art is really distinctive & different.” Aswell as Anya Brock, a household name in the P-town. Having such drive, determination and talent HUGE things are destined to develop in the coming months for Cass. Keep on kicking on sick bitch, you got this in the bag!
