The Bold Work of the World Traveller, John Douglas
Moved by belief, enormity and imagination, John Douglas isn't short of inspiration when it comes to his work as a mixed-media artist. As a dedicated globetrotter, Douglas especially intrigues us with the way he captures his tremendous passion for world travel and his ability to translate those experiences into his art. From the iconic New York City skyline from a penthouse view to the mosaic and tile work of the West Indies, his aesthetic transcends geography as well as time with hints of influence from the renaissance to the surrealist period. John Douglas' work reflects his passion for form, style, experimentation and diversity. His unique ability to harmonize modernity with antiquity can be seen in his experimentations with innovative mediums like painted glass, abstract painting on dimensional copper and steel wall sculptures, painted dimensional wood construction wall reliefs, and vivid abstract paintings. Somehow, despite the complexity of his various techniques, we still experience a sense of ease while appreciating his work.
