About the Artist

John Bacon was born in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and later moved to Oregon where he grew up and went to school. He graduated with a medical degree and practiced as an orthopedic surgeon for 30 years. In his paintings John uses color and form to create energy and he enjoys experimenting with new ideas and techniques. His favorite part of the painting process is creating unique colors through his mixology process.

John’s inspiration comes from within. He "feels" his paintings more than he sees them. For John, the painting process is a function of momentum and often becomes so wrapped up in a painting that he does not stop until the work is complete, so as not to lose the momentum of the painting process. Although there have been many influences in John’s work he cites Picasso, da Vinci and Hans Hoffman as his primary artistic inspirations.
