Gary John has been a street artist since 1985. Originally from Seattle, Washington, he moved to Venice Beach, Los Angeles in 2003 and began selling his work on the Venice boardwalk. After almost ten years, John exploded onto the international art scene for his bold works.
His street artworks have a whimsical yet exciting and bold quality, inspired by classic cartoon and comic book characters rendered with acrylic paint in a bold graffiti style, on newspaper, magazine pages or cardboard. His mixed media works blur the boundaries between Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism mixed with Street Art.
This vibrant 15-inch tall by 11-inch wide acrylic painting on Korean newspaper contains the quintessential elements of Gary John. This unique artwork is dated and signed on the front with the first two letters of Gary John's first and last name: "GA JO." A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery is included. Convenient Continental US shipping and affordable worldwide shipping is available.
John cites Pablo Picasso, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat as his artistic inspiration. Other influences are comic books and American pop culture. His original artworks add a new face to the continuous popularity of pop art.
John says about his art: “I grew up in a dysfunctional home. I always got lost in my art as an escape. Art is my passion. There is not enough time in the day to do all the paintings I want to do. I’m consumed with it.”

Gary John has been a street artist since 1985. Originally from Seattle, Washington, he moved to Venice Beach, California in 2003 and began selling his drawings on the Venice Boardwalk.
After almost ten years selling his work on the boardwalk and experiencing “a bout with homelessness,” John first exploded onto the international art scene during Art Basel Miami in 2013. John’s playfully bold work quickly gained attention and he was named one of 20 standout artists at the 2014 New York Affordable Art Fair. His artworks continue to be exhibited at galleries and major international art fairs in the United States, Asia, and Europe. Notable collectors include Kelly Clarkson.
John cites Pablo Picasso, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat as his artistic inspirations. Other influences are comic books and American Pop Culture, which he infuses with emotional and impulsive gestures. His mixed media works blur the boundaries between Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism with Street Art elements.
