Greensboro based artist, John Gibbs, has been painting since early 2000. While working in Chicago as an Art Director he began painting as a more personal creative outlet. His work is still influenced by his work in computer graphics and commercial art. Johnâ€™s work has been seeking a balance between representation and abstraction or ambiguity. John draws inspiration from landscapes, people, animals, and things. Through the creative process of rendering these things he shows the viewer a different perspective and interpretation from his life experience.Â
Johnâ€™s work is recognizable by its use of intense colors, cloud scapes, line work, and graphic style. The artwork is meant to be familiar and accessible with a twist to make the viewer question the subject or to look at the painting in a different way. His goal is to create works that resonate with the viewer.Â
