Javier Tomas Dones is a visual artist born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico in 1967.
Graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1990 from the Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico. Relocated to Saint Petersburg, Florida in 1992.
In this vibrant city, Javier works from his Studio 209 at the ArtLofts@Florida CraftsArt since 2007. Is an active member of our art community and participates of the activities of several of our Art Associations.
Javier’s current work springs from a lifelong passion and fascination for the elements of Nature, her power, patterns, and structures.
The medium is metals and chemistry. Copper is the main working material. The coloration on the copper is the actual patina elicited by unique chemical processes. Other metals, natural pigments and enamels are often incorporated.
Mainly wall art and commonly presenting three dimensional elements and textures.
View and mission involve collaborating with nature in the production of fine craft art to elicit a sense of reconnection, appreciation and belonging to those elements of nature while beautifying and enhancing the space.
“Feel the power of the elements of nature.”
