Mad Dog Jones: At the Forefront of the Art World’s Digital Revolution
Michah Dowbak aka Mad Dog Jones is a multidisciplinary artist from Thunder Bay, Ontario. His works deftly interweave cyberpunk, dystopian imagery exploring themes of beauty, nature and technology. As a lover of the wilderness, which was ever present where he grew up, he brings a fresh thematic to the metropolitan aesthetic, done up in citrus and neon tones of technology somehow rendered as a space naturally human.
Over the last two years, Dowbak has created artworks for Run The Jewels, Deadmau5, Jabbawockeez, Conor McGregor for Reebok, Snowpiercer TV series and Maroon 5. His first and only IRL exhibit was AFTERL-IFE WORLD in Tokyo Sept-Nov 2019. Since then, Dowbak has risen to fame in the world of crypto art, with the recent success of his Crash + Burn series of NFT artworks. He is now a headliner in the first major NFT art exhibition at UCCA Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing. In Spring 2021, Dowbak and Phillips Auction collaborated on a ground-breaking crypto concept, REPLICATOR. This is the first NFT to be auctioned at Phillips, pioneering the space for future digital artists.
