John Lyes

An accomplished and successful writer & artist, John has been creating visuals that span several genres, from cartooning to political panels, and many variations of abstracts, fine art drawing and finger-painting both in his youth and today where the impact of his talents can be seen to stir, amuse and shock. Emerging from an artistic background that resides in his family, John has taken to new forms of abstract and continues to pull resources from inspiring masters such as Gustav Klimt and Matisse to Van Gogh and Salvador Dali, painting works on canvas, paper and board. And of course my all time favorite painter and all around good guy Bob Ross.

His “Cafe Art” series hangs in coffee shops and on the walls of many admirers as does the “Chair” series in which has garnered praise from discerning collectors everywhere. Though most of his artwork remains unseen, private commissions and print work are often sacrificed for moments of rapid splashes of paint under the intoxicating guise of transcendental genius and expression.
