Meet the Artist: John Vakaleris

John Vakaleris

George John Vakaleris (J VAK) was born in 1957 of Greek parents. Since childhood, frequent trips to the Greek countryside and islands have greatly influenced his artistic style. His works are noted for incorporating luminescent colors into an underlying complexity which boldly compliments simplicity of subject matter. His artwork has been displayed and featured both internationally and throughout the United States. John graduated with honors from both the Columbus School of Art and Design and the University of Chicago. He presently resides in Arizona. Learn more on John's website.

Meet the artist himself when he opens his art exhibition, at Harmon Museum, on May 10th.
