John Santoro

b. 1963

John Santoro lives and works in Chicago where he obtained his degree at the University of Chicago. John's aesthetic lies squarely within the history of abstract expressionism and his work exhibits thick, rich surfaces built up with oil paint. John also has an interesting, slightly wry sense of humor that comes through in both his subject and title choices. Santoro interprets landscapes, forms and structures in a simplistic yet focused way that invites the viewer into the work.
