Preternatural Reality and Allegorical Symmetry.
With over 18 years experience in New York City as Artist and Designer, John “JC” Carr has developed a reputation for producing ideas and visual communications that transcend the clutter. A career of creativity spanning an eclectic mix of mediums – including Fine Art, Branding, Illustration, Art/Video Installations, UI/UX Design and Web development, John has evolved, recently curating his first wall in Brooklyn. A ’97 graduate from The Art Center, he is inspired by the energy of New York City, it’s creative inhabitants and the never-ending hustle.
John has been busy the past few years showing in some of NYC’s top Galleries, painting murals all over the city and continuing to progress in the studio. He is also a prolific street artist with hundreds of prints wheat-pasted throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan. With this, he looks to liberate the visual landscape from the over-saturation of advertising and corporate signage.
