Welcome to the website for the Canadian realist artist, figurative, portrait, and still-life oil painter, John Hansen
Visual inspiration and personal symbolism are my initial catalysts in developing a painting. My objective is to build toward what my 'mind's eye' has conceptualized. In order to juxtapose and balance my themes, well considered compositional elements are used. My artwork is then constructed fully in a sound practice of traditional oil painting. As the viewer you are invited to discover your own personal interpretations.
