John Kime was born in Phoenix, Arizona and has lived in the southwest all his life. His profound attachment to the landscape and history of the area is evident in his painting and sculptural work. At the start of his career, John gained experience as a marketer and exhibition director for an internationally renowned fine art gallery. During his nearly 20 years of working with artists and art buyers, the impetus grew to create and John chose to embark upon his own career in painting and artist representation. John found his voice and developed his own visual language with paint and canvas, later expanding into mixed media and sculpture. His courage to follow his heart has brought him great success through a variety of venues.
Preferring to work in mixed media at this point in his career, John is able to incorporate various elements that give his work a unique texture and complex composition. John explains his use of this medium: "In my paintings, I want to break the barrier between painting and sculpture. Through the use of texture and color I form a vision of the third dimension. I find myself coming up with ideas which can only be realized through the building up of layer upon layer of paint and texture. Finally, I impose structure on the canvas, creating a surface which is both sculptural and dimensional."
Johns art pieces are hanging in private collections and fine art galleries throughout the United States, Europe, Canada and Mexico.
