About John Holdway

John Holdway is an painter, illustrator, teacher and designer with over 20 years experience. John loves stories and hopes to invite the viewer into his world and let their own stories unfold. He tries to create what he calls an open narrative. John sets the scene with mood and characters creating a stage that is ripe to draw the stories to flow from the viewer.

A work of art should be interesting to look at for many years. The way to create that kind of holding power is to not tell the whole story but leave room for a viewer to create. That is my ultimate goal to encourage a viewer to take over where I leave off. That is the magic of painting, you connect to the object like a good story and live there in your mind.

Classical painters, Twentieth Century surrealist, theater and filmmaking all influence his work. He earned a BFA in painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.
