My name is John Bishop, and I am a painter and illustrator. With every artwork that I create, I attempt to connect, to bind disparate elements together into new vocabularies, new stories, that are both fresh and archetypal at the same time. I paint, photograph, and write about what I feel, not so much what I see. Don't look to my art for history, but rather for a glimpse into my own emotion, my own symbols, my own stories. Hopefully, you will recognize your story there too, and my art can become your art as well.
