John Sharp is a photorealist artist and art educator who resides with his family in Tennessee. "The urban landscape is my greatest passion. Sadly, it is drastically changing and the signage industry of yesteryear is ever-fading. To capture these marvels is a privilege to me. Whether it is an old neon sign, an abandoned space, or forgotten object, I am captivated by how years or decades of rust and decay slowly creep through the surface. To me, there is something beautiful in the abandoned and I feel somehow it is my purpose as an artist to capture them before someone else takes note, and they are gone forever." John Sharp has had his work exhibited in galleries such as the Uptown Arts Center in Chicago, Illinois, the Mondak Heritage Center in Sydney, Montana, Art House Co-op in Brooklyn, New York, and the Siena Art Institute in Siena, Italy. Sharp was also a featured artist in Hyperrealism Magazine #11 in 2020. In 2012 his painting "One Left" was selected for a featured collection by Rebecca Wilson, chief curator at Saatchi Art.
