About

Los Angeles artist Gary John used acrylic paint and pastels on an architectural plan to create this one-of-a-kind original artwork. It is signed by the artist and dated on the bottom left front. This artwork ships for free worldwide. A certificate of authenticity is included. This artwork will ship the first week of January 2016.

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 on the Venice boardwalk.

After almost 10 years on the boardwalk and experiencing “a bout with homelessness,” John exploded onto the international art scene first 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 NY Affordable Art Fair. His artworks continue to be exhibited at major international art fair in the United States and Europe.

John cites Pablo Picasso, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat as his artistic inspiration. Other influences are comic books and American pop culture.

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.

John is says about his artworks: “I grew up in a dysfunctional, alcohol filled home. It actually pushed me away from drugs and alcohol. I have never drunk any liquor, smoked, or done any drugs. 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 painting I want to do. I’m consumed with it.”
