Art in any form is essential to the soul. I didn't know much about art growing up.  I wasn't surrounded by art in my home and never gave much thought to the people who were spending millions of dollars to outfit their homes. Working for an interior design firm, going to an art school, and working here at Iconic Home has changed all of that.  I have an appreciation for artist who use all sorts of methods to express themselves. 

Each month Iconic Home Magazine will showcase an artist who creates with no boundaries. We want to introduce you to up and coming artist and give you a way to purchase the things you love for your space. It's our way of changing the narrative about art and what a powerful piece can do to lift up your space. 

 January Artist of the month:  JON MOODY

Moody was raised in New Orleans where he began developing his artist skills at an early age. He is often referred to as “The Artist Athlete” while pursuing his BA in Visual Effects at Savannah College of Art and Design he also ran track.

Eventually gaining his Masters in painting Moody returned to New Orleans where he was contacted by Pepsi to do the art dome at The Voodoo Fest, a long running New Orleans tradition.  He has painted exclusive commisions for  rappers and entertainers Lil Wayne and Future. A highlight of his career has been having his work grace the walls of The White House.   Moody's popularity increased when another one of his pieces was chosen for the award winning set of the hit show "Empire." 

His work is bold and unique which he has branded “Splash Style” What sets him apart from other young artist is his ability to cover political, social and cultural issues in this unique  way.

You can check out all of his work on Instagram or even purschase your own special painting on his website!
