JOHN SCHOEN

Photography, Mixed Media & Painting


 I was born and raised in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs.  The city’s architecture, diverse culture, and history of racial tensions has influenced my art.  I consider my work “outsider art” because I had little formal art training.

What makes my art different is that it combines many old school processes and techniques.  I begin with black & white film photography and then add acrylic airbrush, ink silk screen, encaustic paint, oil & acrylic text stenciling or repurposed images from magazines or the web.

What I want to convey is imagery that reflects my interpretation of the current young urban American zeitgeist.
