Featured Artist – John Benko

Born and raised in Cleveland, OH. I started painting and drawing at a very young age. Went to art school at Kent State University for a BA in Drawing. I ran my own Graphics and Screen Printing business in Cleveland for 7 years. I moved to San Francisco in January 09 to pursue my career as a fine artist. All of my work is inspired by and dedicated to my 2 children.

Artist Statement:
“My paintings and drawings evolve from automatic applications of color into very cognitive pieces of work. The lines begin to take shape; the shapes begin to take form, sometimes living between the worlds of abstract and surreal. I like to think that I paint how ‘nature’ would paint itself…with the freedom to evolve and the ability to evolve effectively.”

The title I have given to my exhibit is “Resurgence”
