Welcome to John of Art. My name is John Wiegand and I am a Fine Artist.
I have been doing art since 1982 and my purpose is to inspire hope by creating art that helps people to see things from a different perspective.
I am self-taught and self-disciplined. My medium of choice is colored pencils and I draw what I see and feel around me. Some people describe my work "as having a visionary color sense" with "an uncanny arrangement of form and volume". I put things in places you wouldn't expect, and draw them in colors you may never have seen.
I respond not to trends and training, but to something either in the hills, clouds or in the water and you can't look away. Other artists you may see in my work include the Fauves, the Neo Expressionists, the Nabis and the folk art of Gaugin.
Have fun and enjoy "the visual curve balls" as you gaze at my art and if something catches your eye, pick it up and enjoy it in the privacy of your home.
