About John Grande

John Grande's work with its vibrant colors, serrated juxtapositions, double and triple dimensions and energetic is set apart by the unexpected — yet it speaks to everybody: “It’s about the people, about us, the human race”. Each line of work, each piece is unique, constructing and deconstructing popular and contemporary culture derived from today’s multi-media world, as well as transforming and uniquely weaving high-end symbols and icons immersed in today’s lifestyle using industrial mediums in the process. "Art is like a medicine for me, the creative process is healing...".

John Grande was trained at the School of Visual Arts in New York. His artwork has been shown and collected worldwide, from India to Switzerland and Italy to Mexico and Korea, and all over the United States.
