“There is a painting in this series called 'Jupiter' which is a direct reference to the color schemes in 2001: A Space Odyssey. That is one of the most beautiful movies ever shot, in my opinion.” — John Platt
Ridgewood, Queens-based artist John Platt (b. 1984) takes inspiration for his works from architecture, fashion, music, photography, and film. His abstract paintings are unified by his exacting use of color as a tool for storytelling and conceptual exploration. John currently splits his time between New York City and Africa, where he founded the art education program How to Draw a Lion.
