Jim Rode (JimRode) is the artist at Friday Night Art creating ink fusion art on sheets of aluminum and canvas art for your wall decor. Artist pieces are created and chosen through his travel photography.
Jim is married and lives in Oklahoma City. He is a writer, blogger, photographer and artist using both canvas and metal.
For decades he created fine art weddings for people in love who sought out art for their wedding day. In 2017, Jim began to dedicate himself to projects that followed a deeper path in the art world.
For many years Jim has experimented with inks on canvas and ink-to-plastic process onto metal, to create metal fusion art. Walking the land and cities, Jim captures images. "Working by memory always leaves too much out for me!" From the photography media, Jim works with inks to capture his art and apply to watercolor papers, canvas, and ink fused aluminum for your office and home wall display. "Working with metal is very exciting. Like a baker making his bread, I am thrilled when the finished metal print cools from 400º. Colors just jump!"
Jim's work is currently displayed at The Lift Art Gallery in Oklahoma City and is available for acquisition on his Shop page.
"In Love and Art, You Live Forever." Jim Rode
