“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

About the Artist

962aebe4 9aa3 4fa7 9323 4495e26822f7

John Platt (b. 1984) was born and raised in New York City, immediately exposing the young artist to the worlds’ great capital of art and culture. Early visits to the Museum of Modern Art opened his mind to the possibilities of being a painter, a career path that took him to The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, where he graduated in 2007. Platt has honed his skills as an abstractionist by allowing a wide range of media–architecture, fashion, music, photography, film–to influence his work. Platt has exhibited globally and currently splits his time between NYC and Africa, where he founded the art education program How to Draw a Lion.
