John Macdonald

John Macdonald is an accomplished Canadian Artist whose work has been collected and exhibited nationally and internationally for over two decades. His work is informed by traditional as well as the avant-garde.

The images usually depict people in the Artist's immediate environment. His endeavor is, in essence, to create social situations, involving the viewer as the silent third party, caught in the act of looking.

The physicality and lush application of oil paint encourage a dialogue that speaks to the viewer with their amorphic fleeting nuances and experimental flicks of paint, tracing the creative act.

John Macdonald graduated with honors and merit awards in 1987 from Emily Carr College of Art and Design. His paintings are in the collections of the Department of External Affairs, Ottawa; Toronto Dominion Bank, Vancouver and Toronto; Shaw Cable, Calgary; The Bentall Center, Vancouver; The Grand Pacific Hotel, Victoria; and The Hyatt Regency, Calgary.

Originally from Prince George, and a long time resident of Vancouver, the Artist now resides with his wife and daughter on Salt Spring Island, BC.
