About

Hello! My name is John Azelvandre and welcome to my studio.

My motto is "Actualize the truth you want to see in the world."  The truth I want to actualize is about beauty, harmony, lovingkindness and openness -- all things our world needs more of.  

To that end, my work is expressionistic, abstract and necessarily experimental. When looking at my paintings you’ll see right away that I am heavily inspired by nature, even when nature has to contend with the contrasts and contradictions of urban life. Since I’m trying to express not only the appearances of things but also the thoughts and emotions that my surroundings inspire, each piece is a leap into the unknown.  Each painting is a jumping off into a world without words and without easily defined categories. Would you like to join me on this adventure?

Art seeks to communicate, and so art needs an audience! That’s where you come in. Thanks so much for appreciating my work and my process. I hope you will support me on this voyage into the great unknown. It has its challenges and its rewards. Among the challenges is the great cost of making quality oil and watercolor paintings here in New York City, where I live. The chief reward for me is to see, experience and interact with the fruits of all this labor. I'd like to share this with you. By supporting me here on Patreon, you can facilitate my art-making process by enabling me to maintain and expand my supply of tools and materials, obtain bigger and better studio space and keep exploring, expressing, creating and communicating.

I’m seeking patrons who can support me for as little as $1, $5, $10 or more per month. Even the smallest amount helps. Patreon will be the main venue for new work, detailed progress narratives, artwork backstories and my ideas, tips and news on artmaking.

Most importantly, patrons get discounts on my art and will also have the opportunity to receive art freebies! Why? Paintings are meant to be seen, experienced and lived with in person, not on screen.  I want to get my work out of the studio, into your hands and onto your walls!

So, thanks for checking things out! I hope you’ll join me here!
