Say hello to Jason Edmiston, a Toronto-based artist who works his magic with paints, watercolors and other mediums. Mondo Gallery here in Austin, Texas has had a piece of Jason’s work in more than a few of their gallery shows in the past and they are always nothing short of amazing.
Finally Mondo will be hosting an exhibition of Jason’s work including original paintings, giclees and screenprints titled A Rogue’s Gallery. It’s an exhibition of villains in movies!
See below for a partial list, or just look at the photos taken by Rainbolt.

One thing we like about this show is that if you want an original painting or sketch here, you can afford it. Jason has provided pieces ranging from pencils to inks to full-fledged acrylic paintings. If you don’t want an original, you can pay a fraction of the price for a giclee or screenprint. This is another great gallery show where there is something for everyone.
A Rogue’s Gallery opens tonight August 23 from 7-10 p.m until September 14th.
Take a look at some of Jason’s past work.

He is a traditional artist, painting in acrylic on watercolour paper or wood panel. His style ranges from realism to exaggeration, usually emphasizing the figure, and a certain degree of humour or caricature.
