Welcome,

Thank you for visiting my online art gallery. I am a 66-year-old self-taught artist. I began painting at age 13. In 1986, I found a style of creating oil paintings on canvas that felt right for me.

In 2003 with 060 'The Birth of Peace', I began to incorporate naked females into my art. I began to consider these works of art dreamscape where the female was the dreamer.

The originals are located in Albuquerque, New Mexico and can be viewed by appointment. You can contact me by the telephone number or email address displayed on this website.

My art can best be categorized as Visionary Art. "Visionary art as defined for the purposes of the American Visionary Art Museum refers to art produced by self-taught individuals, usually without formal training, whose works arise from an innate personal vision that revels foremost in the creative act itself."

Since my art is not like the majority of Visionary Art paintings, I have determined that the genre should be simply "WorldPeace Visionary Art".

My art is intended to be as interesting up close as it is from far away. It uses black and white, primary and secondary colors for emotion. It is intellectual in its hard line. Each painting is full of icons and symbols and clearly contains a message which I have appended to the detail of many of the paintings.

At this point, August 2013, John began to paint lesser works which he termed studies. These studies were drawn directly on the stretched canvas by John without a prior pencil sketch or Photoshop sketch. The original intent was to create compositions with which to train apprentices. However, John decided when creating the first study that he should just create a smaller composition instead of having the apprentice paint endless squares in order to learn how to mix paint. use the script brush, and other techniques John had developed since 1986.

At this point, August 2010, beginning with 066 Lady Gaga, John started to use apprentices to paint his art. The compositions were John's but due to impaired eyesite and the lack of a steady hand for close detail work John could no longer paint his compositions. For the most part only one apprentice was assigned to a paintng. The apprentices are given credit for the paintings they worked on in the Apprentice section of this website.
