Artist Bio

John Peaspanen I enjoy exploring a range of art forms and materials. As such, acrylics, pastels, inks, graphite, charcoal, watercolors and colored pencils have all been utilized to create figurative studies, wildlife illustrations and pieces that refuse to fall into a genre.

Ever since my first life drawing class in college, I have loved creating portraits and female figurative pieces. To me, there is nothing more classically beautiful than a tasteful nude. The play of light on the curves and contours offers a great challenge. And every woman, regardless of race, size or age, has a unique beauty that should be celebrated.

I have been influenced by many sources, cultures and artists over the years. I always appreciated the Japanese woodblock prints, which led me to the art of Patrick Nagel and Dennis Mukai in the '80s and '90s. The pin-ups of Olivia, Frazetta and Vargas are also favorites. As far as classical influences, Degas, Mucha, Klimt, da Vinci, Renoir, van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec, Modigliani and others have been studied and certainly have added to my current styles of painting and drawing.

Favorite themes for me are nudes and ethnic portraits. However, I enjoy throwing a wildlife painting or fantasy piece into the mix on occasion. I paint what I like. I hope you like them, too.
