Description of the Piece: "This City My Backyard" was originally created as part of a larger quadriptych called "A Portrait of Oakland." The original piece is 5’x5’.
Growing up as the son of two dancers, the relationship between fluidity and tension has been an ever present element in his art. For John, making art is a process of connection, realization and awakening. He explores ideas of existence, time, space, struggle and serenity through his chosen mediums of painting, drawing, mixed media, assemblage, and installation. Reclaimed and found materials factor strongly into his works, as they contain so many stories.

Artist Bio: John is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and works regularly in Los Angeles and NYC. He shows globally, and has exhibited with SFMOMA, B.R.I.C. Arts, and Tokyo's Spes-Lab Experimental Art Space. He has received numerous awards and grants and is represented in Takashi Murakami’s private collection.
