About John Waguespack

Born and raised in Atlanta, John Waguespack has been painting and drawing since the age of 3. After attending Boston College as a finance major, he spent several years working for Wall Street. In an attempt to recapture his sanity, he attended the Portfolio Center in Atlanta and studied art direction and design. John moved to San Francisco in 1998 where he was an art director for several bay area ad agencies. In 2005 he quit the 9 to 5 to focus completely on painting.

"My work, like my mind, floats heavily between the abstract and the surreal," adds Waguespack. "The struggle is often to make sense of the initial chaos created by abstraction and push elements into the surreal. The paintings essentially design themselves, shapes form, light plays and eventually a story begins to unfold. The subconscious often interjects historical and current events, religion, sarcasm and elements of popular culture."
