I am an emerging artist. This website is still under construction, please forgive the mistakes. Images are big and a bit heavy to
load, for you to see them in detail. My main current body of work are the 2 portraits slide shows. I'm looking for art galleries, representation and opportunities to show and sell my work. Thank you for visiting.
Jhon Serrano was born in 1974 in Neiva, Colombia. He studied a Bachelor of Graphic Design at Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano (Bogotá, 1997) and a Diploma of Graphic Design, Animation and Multimedia at La Salle College (Bogotá, 2003).
He worked several years as a graphic designer for Icono Multimedia, a websites and CD-ROMs developer company (1997-2001). Since then and after he’s been working as a free lance graphic designer and photographer. His interest in photography started in college with analog photography and then in his first job at this company, which required him to undertake important digital photography related projects using Photoshop.
Ater years of creating digital art inspired both by his own work as a graphic designer and photographer and by self-initiated projects, in 2014 he joined Espitia Gallery, a collective of artists in Wynwood, Miami. He then evolved and developed his body of work (which he continues to do) participating in several group exhibitions there in 2014.
Jhon uses computer software to create photography based art and illustrative design. He makes digital illustrations and paintings, starting with photographs. He’s a photographic artist. He paints with pixels and visual effects over his photographs. He looks for ways to transform photography with strong colors, textures and collage in layered photo-composites with a lot of elements, creating painterly, fantasy-like, pop-inspired images.
