  • About the work

Los Angeles street artist Gary 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 twenty standout artists at the 2014 NY Affordable Art Fair. His contemporary artworks continue to be exhibited at major international art fairs in the United States, Asia and Europe. John applied brightly colored acrylic paint, graphite, and wax onto cardstock to create each piece in this one-of-a-kind triptych. Each artwork, mounted on an acid free mat, is framed with acrylic glass and a black frame. Size and price include all three framed artworks. Each artwork is signed and dated by the artist in the lower left corner using the first two letters of his first and last name (GA JO). A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery included. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental US and global shipping is available.

Gary John references his creative struggle and success in every artwork he makes. Along the left side of the artwork he paints a series of circles joined together by an arrow pointing up. Each circle represents a stepping stone on the path of success that keeps growing to greater heights. On the right side he depicts a line of houses, expressing the joy he finds in the stability of a home.


About the Artist

1963 Seattle, Washington, United States

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. 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, architectural plans or cardboard. His mixed media works blur the boundaries between Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism mixed with Street Art.

After almost 10 years 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 NY Affordable Art Fair. His artworks continue to be exhibited at galleries and major international art fairs in the United States, Asia 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, which he infuses with emotional and impulsive gestures.
