JOHN BROSIO American Games

John Brosio, (b.1967) was raised in Southern California and later earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of California at Davis in 1991. Brosio’s artistic journey, originally film and special effects, shifted to painting under the guidance of artists Wayne Thiebaud and Richard Bunkall. Originally recognized for his paintings of tornados, Brosio spent three seasons “storm chasing” in Texas. His art reflects life’s chaotic duality, capturing the simultaneous emergence of new life and imminent death. Influenced by cosmology, particularly the Holographic Principle, he finds joy in the notion that the universe is a simulation, resulting in surreal paintings. Beyond subject matter, Brosio sees painting as the orchestration of relationships in the universe. His extensive exhibition history includes solo shows in California and New York, along with a notable survey at the National Academy of Sciences Museum in Washington D.C. in 2008. A favorite artist of Hollywood and Sci Fi’s creative community, collectors of Brosio’s paintings include film director J.J. Abrams, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and “Hellboy” creator Mike Mignola. Most recently, musician Wolfgang Van Halen features one of Brosio’s paintings for the cover of his latest album, “Mammoth II.”

“I have lots of ideas, but I think that only a small percen of painting is ideas. It’s about trying to realize those ideas and make them work, and there is a lot of failure.”
