    In Memory of Jason Monet

    Jason Monet at his 70th birthday party
    Recently, Jason Monet passed away from complications due to cancer. He spent his last months in Australia with his family while receiving medical attention. He is survived by his four daughters, two sons and three grandchildren.
    For over twenty years Jason Monet lived larger than life in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia where he was captivated by the lighting of the tropics. He leaves behind quite a legacy in Ubud for his masterful painting, singular sculptures and beautiful bamboo houses that were a powerful testament to the need for conservation. Just last May he threw a wonderful 70th birthday bash that will be talked about for years to come. All of Ubud, Bali, and Indonesia will greatly miss his charming character.
    Thank you Mr. Jason Monet for all your contributions.

    Monet, Bamboo and S.O.S.

    On May 4th Jason Monet celebrated his 70th birthday kicking off a week long party and retrospective exhibition of his work. The opening night was an extravaganza of traditional Balinese music followed by rock and roll.

    Other reasons for the shindig were raising money for the Sumatran Orangutan Society and a house warming for his recently completed 2 bamboo house complex. Jason has worked tirelessly promoting the plight of the orangutan. Part of his mission to save them is promoting bamboo as an alternative resource for wood. If more people used bamboo, which is complete renewable, the habitat of creatures like the Sumatran Orangutan would be saved. This is more than lip service as his beautiful bamboo palaces clearly state. Everything is made of bamboo.

    Thanks to Jason and S.O.S. for a wonderful time.

    What wonderful color through out the water and sky. This boat just makes me smile. These colors are so tropical and the lighting is perfect on this painting.

    New Monet’s

    Bike

    Jason Monet has a new gallery! Check out some scenes from Jason’s life in the tropics. This gallery has some traditional Balinese Culture and Ceremony with a touch of the lush countryside. It also shows the unique flare that is brought to any area Jason Monet is in proximity to: the sink/fountain sculpture. Be sure to check back to this new gallery soon because it is growing! The above bicycle is his daughter Louise’s. This particular piece was painted in Australia one year ago. 2007 promises to be a prolific year for Jason Monet. He is nearly finished with his new eco-friendly bamboo house, and this home is surrounded with future Jason paintings. Stay tuned! New Monet Gallery

    Oil on Canvas
    This is one of my favorite new pieces of Jason’s. What a beautiful perspective. The large leaves in the foreground with the rice terraces and volcano smoldering in the background. Absolutely brillant!

    Jason Monet’s portraits are full of structure and mood highlighted with an array of colors and energy.

    While painting, Jason is a swift whirlwind of personalities and paint as he races time to capture the light and the “moment”.

    Jason Monet Biography

    For six decades Jason Monet has been crafting his vibrant and honest view of the world onto canvas. Since studying art in England, Jason has painted while living all over the world including Malta and Australia.

    Jason with Amed

    For the past 20 years he has lived on the Island of Bali, Indonesia where he lives as strongly as he paints.

    Upon first glance one may draw comparisons to the great impressionist and post-impressionist painters or the expressionist movement. Soon after that first glance it becomes very apparent that Jason Monet has an individualistic style that is clearly his own.

    He never paints from portraits or finishes paintings in the studio. Everything is strictly en plein air and alla prima.

    While painting, Jason is a swift whirlwind of personalities and paint as he races time to capture the light and the moment. His portraits are full of structure and mood highlighted with an array of colors and energy.

    From the distance his paintings have tremendous life movement. It is as if one is staring at a brief video loop of a moment, where most paintings are a snapshot from the artist eye/mind. Up close to a Jason Monet painting the sourse of this movement and energy is found. He paints with pure confidence in thick bold strokes that nearly blur together, just like a 3-D photo held to closely to the face.
