Welcome to the website of Canadian artist, figure and portrait 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 painting. As the viewer you are invited to discover your own personal interpretations."
