Artist Name: John Taber
Artist Bio: I am a twenty-nine year old Graphic Designer/Painter/Illustrator from Upstate New York. I earned my BA in Fine Art in 2012 from Buffalo State College, and have since moved to New York City to further pursue my dream of becoming an Artist that pushes my abilities further every day.
My love for drawing began when I was in pre-school. My parents took me to Boston on a train, and to keep me entertained my father drew American Revolution battle scenes on notebook paper with a pen. I began copying those drawings in the hotel room that night, and haven’t looked back since.
Today, I mainly use Adobe Illustrator to finalize my artwork digitally, but also love painting on canvas. My style is mostly inspired by tattoo artwork, graffiti and street art. I love bold subject matter clearly outlined and defined, and find that the use of color is vital to creating art that people want to look at. My favorite artists include Hydro74, Palehorse Designs and Dan Mumford, all of which give me wild ideas on what to create next.
