Duane Jones (b. 1981, Devonshire, Bermuda) is currently based in Kjipuktuk (Halifax, Nova Scotia). He has a multi-disciplinary practice that involves painting, drawing, digital tools and fashion that is informed by his upbringing as a Black Bermudian cisgender male existing at a crossroad between North-American, Caribbean and British culture. His work often explores race, gender, sexual orientation and how his cultural experiences inform or contradict common narratives.
Duane holds an Associates Degree in Art and Design from Bermuda College, a Communication Design (Honours) Degree from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University and a Master’s Degree in Information Management from Dalhousie University.
