Mark Jones Velo Art paintings are custom made hand crafted original artworks that celebrate bicycles and cycling. 'Velo Art' and ‘Still life cycle’ acrylic on canvas range of paintings reflect a passion for the most efficient machine ever invented. Available as originals or prints they are often painted to commission and have been exhibited at the Look Mum No Hands Hackney Cafe, London and Zappi's Cycle Cafe, Oxford and the UK handmade bicycle show 2014 at the Olympic Velodrome, London.

Jones's 'Racing Silks' paintings depict order, chance, symbolism and geometry, they incorporate lustrous colours, simple pattern and bold forms. Their inspiration is drawn from the artists local Hampshire environment and from travelling around Europe. The Racing Silk paintings have been on display at the National Trainers Federation office in Lambourn and the Northern Racing College, Doncaster.

Roman amphitheatres and Greek arenas have fascinated the artist ever since he was a child marching around Chester's Roman city walls. The Deva amphitheatre has now been partially excavated and gladiatorial re-enactments entertain the tourists. The artist has travelled around the Mediterranean during summer holidays exploring these ancient architectural sites with their dramatic geometry and his paintings recreate memories of these visits. Exhibited in Manchester, Oldham, Leeds, Derby, Chester, Arles, Orange and the Mall galleries London.
