Demo Artist

Emerging international artist John Galan resides in Ventura County California. His work focuses on the inextricable connection between humankind and natural world. Characteristics include: vibrant, high chroma hues influenced by the artist’s Mexican heritage. Galan’s paintings are highly symbolic, depicting personal memories and ideas including underlying themes & motifs influenced by geographical location, seasons, weather, personality and culture.

Such work strives to tap into the psychological aspects of the mind hoping to trigger a sense of unified subconsciousness. This connectivity in turn, relates to the Carl Jung’s idea of “collective consciousness”. An idea of deep culture rooted in common beliefs and moral ethics. Galan’s artwork expands on those archetypes of universal connectivities as a means to explore and preserve his own cultural roots.

ABOUT (continued)
John's works deal with the inextricable connection between human kind and the natural world.

His art is representational of his cultural background, conservation efforts, and political views.
